Yellow-rumped warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 24 April 2019.
Yellow-rumped warbler.

Fog again today. (How many straight day is that? Seven?) But—much to my relief—no Snowy Owl.

I say “to my relief” because I’d begun to worry about humans pestering the owl. In fact, this morning I came upon a couple of humans who happened to be hunting for it. (Actually, no—I only ran into one, although she told me of the other.) Thing is, the fog was very heavy. Also, no owl appeared in any of the places I’d seen it. Also, no mobbing crows.

My hope is the guy has moved at least somewhat closer to his northern destination.
