Palm Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 September 2018.

A nippy, partly cloud morning. Temps in the 40s—but rising pretty fast to about 40 by sundown. Calm breeze, birds about. First I had to check on the birds.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

In particular, I enjoyed becoming acquainted with a stray Palms Warbler. What a handsome bird, and what an interesting downward-inflected chip note. Also got good looks at yellow-rumps, a White-throated sparrow, and a few other oddities (see list).

I also attended a memorial service this afternoon at the Camden Snow Bow. Moved and touched and taught.

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