Odd Assortment

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016
Savannah Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 27 September 2016.

Savannah Sparrow.

On my hike with dog after the rains, I detected the whine of a sapsucker, heard the call of a distant Barred Owl, caught sight of a Pileated Woodpecker in flight approaching, watched (and listened) to a pair of larks settle into the bronze grass.

Quite an odd assortment at Beech Hill this morning.
