At Last, True Spring

Song Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 25 May 2019.
Song Sparrow.

The first warm spring day of 2019. I mean, truly warm. Plenty of birds about—including a first-of-year House Wren in “my” birch tree. Flycatchers, another Swainson’s Thrush.

Looks like the hill will have no Savannah Sparrows, though, for the first year I can remember.
