Back to the routine

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 26 September 2015.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Back on the hill again today, but this time with a bandaged hand and another dog in tow. We’re watching maple for a day or two so her mom and pop can work the Common Ground Fair.

Saddle and Mark.

Nothing too outlandish this afternoon at Beech Hill—but quite a little flight of yellow-rumps in the spruce grove at the summit, zipping up to nab flies. The natives seem restless, as they should be at this busy, important, stocking-up time of year.

A nippy night tonight. A nice tomorrow expected. Plus a lunar eclipse late tomorrow evening.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
