Hello, Little Birdie

Friday, June 28th, 2019
Yellow Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 28 June 2019.
Yellow Warbler.

I got my best photo of a Yellow Warbler this morning. I’ve been spotting the same bird, singing in the same birch tree, for weeks. Never could pin it down.

But this third foggy morning in a row, soon after I discovered that the cloud had burned away about half-way up the hill, I stood and waited and got just the glimpse I’ve been looking for.

Hey, little birdie.
