Wilson’s Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 31 May 2019.
Wilson’s Warbler.

Thick fog early. Again I didn’t expect much in the way of bird activity—or photos. Again I was wrong.

In fact, I had a first-of-year Blackpoll Warbler. Heard the voice of a Wilson’s Warbler for the first time (at least the first time I can remember). At home, I heard/spied a Tennessee Warbler—first in years.

Just an all around great birding day. Thanks, Nature.
