Just a Lovely Day

Beech Hill List
Beginning at 7:45 a.m., I hiked the open trail.

Great Crested Flycatcher, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 July 2019.
Great Crested Flycatcher.

A sunny, calmish, summery day. Bird’s still a little skittish and quiet, but many have fledglings and are moving around. Watched a quiet Great Crested Flycatcher moving from perch to perch, settling for a moment on a bluebird box. At the summit of the hill saw chippies and a bright red purple finch and a Morning Dove.

But the best treat for me this morning was meeting a dog named Raisin—a young female rescue who went from a hero in this community to needing expensive medical care a month or so ago—and got it through donations. She seemed perfectly happy and healthy.

Got some work done, then took a long bike ride. Just a lovely day.
