Brown-headed Cowbird (juvenile), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 28 June 2017.

Brown-headed Cowbird (juvenile).

My Beech Hill hike today brought me
near a number of fledglings,
chicks, and juvenile birds.
Most I heard—

as faint, directionless keenings
amid the thickened foliage.
I saw but one,
a cowbird, on its own.
