Horned Larks, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 02 January 2017.

Horned Larks.

As flock of Horned Larks
circled Beech Nut,
the hut at the top of Beech Hill,
dog and I stood within the wide stone veranda
peering out in various directions,
watching them,
listening to their twittering.

At last they settled in a lower field,
out of the wind,
farĀ away.

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