Potential Energy

Eastern Bluebird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 26 March 2019.
Eastern Bluebird.

This morning—sub-freezing, breezy, clear—had the feel of spring. The hint of it. The taste of potential energy.

Beginning with the loud call of the neighborhood Pileated Woodpecker. A list of varied bird species. Little flock of first-of-year Common Grackles.

Later, at the harbor, I watched a loon eat catch and eat again. (Probably the same loon.)

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