White Throats

White-throated Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 April 2017.

White-throated Sparrow.

Many, many White-throated Sparrows slipped through a peppy northwesterly wind overnight to flood the slopes of Beech Hill. Also a bunch of Yellow-rumped Warblers. Also two first-of-year birds for me: Blue-headed Vireo and Gray Catbird.

Rain predicted for the rest of the week, pretty much—but no matter. Tomorrow is May Day.
