Breezy Overcast

Song Sparrow (and milkweed), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 28 September 2016.

Song Sparrow (and milkweed).

A cool (low 50s (F)), breezy, overcast morning. Jack and I encountered a few interesting birds—and two excited, off-leash dogs. Most interesting, bird-wise, were more larks on the slopes and a skulking Dark-eyed Junco.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

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