Birds on the Move

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 September 2018.

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve.

Quite a little bird activity this lovely bright fall morning. Lots of yellow-rumps, plenty of finches, nuthatches and robins and sparrows. Catbirds. No obvious hawks today—but I’m sure they were around.

Fall migration thrills me. Birds on the move.

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