Hike in a Cloud

Thursday, June 20th, 2019
Ovenbird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 20 June 2019.
Ovenbird.

Fog thicker than yesterday morning. Jewel-like droplets on everything. Too dim in the bottomlands to get many decent photo, but the thrushes were leery of dog and me. Also one particular chickadee. And ovenbirds.

It’s nice to get so far in the year that you know what’s nesting where.

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