Little feathered guys

Brown Creeper, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 01 December 2015.

Brown Creeper.

Cold and sunny early; warmer and overcast late. Had a number of birds in the back yard here, and a bunch at Beech Hill, too—including a solo harrier winging its way above the brown barrens.

Northern Harrier.

Snapped about a hundred photos of a Brown Creeper but didn’t get much. They just about never stop moving, and it was too dark for a short exposure. Love those little feathered guys.

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