Savannah Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 June 2019.
Savannah Sparrow.

This early morning on the way to the hill, I saw a Broad-winged Hawk take wing from along the side of the road with a chipmunk in its talons. Thing weren’t so dramatic during our hike, dog and me.

But there were plenty of birds, more than plenty mosquitoes, and a lovely-voiced Savannah Sparrow to serenade us.

Also a threat of thundershowers, though none ever came. (Tomorrow could be a different story.)
