Vireo

Monday, April 29th, 2019
Blue-headed vireo (first of year), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 April 2019.
Blue-headed vireo (first of year).

Kind of chilly this morning. Chilly like not yet 40° (F) when dog and I hit the trail. Also breezy. No, windy. A northwesterly wind—so I didn’t expect a lot of bird activity.

And then, in the lee of the eastern slope, I came upon a first-of-year Blue-headed Vireo.
