Exciting times

White-breasted Nuthatch, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 27 April 2015.

White-breasted Nuthatch.

Just a quick late-afternoon hike today—but, man, was the weather wild. We’d had periods of rain throughout the day, then periods of letup. Then late some patches of blue moved over, and the sun came out and beamed onto a warming scene. That’s about the time Jack and I headed out.

But then the clouds closed up again, and it rained again—but about the time we reached the hill, the rain tapered off. So the walk was fine.

Best sighting today: a bright little Fox Sparrow hanging in the pile of little trees just felled by a work party the other day. (In fact, there might’ve been a pair.)

These are exciting times.
