Sultry Morning

American Redstart, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 17 July 2019.
American Redstart.

A warm, humid morning. Got to the hill early, and the bird life did not disappoint. Lots of activity, singing and begging and feeding.Got a nice look at a singing/preening redstart. Spotted a Hermit Thrush rather out of place in the spruce grove at the summit.

Also spied two turkey families on the drive back home—two adults and a dozen tiny poults swimming in the tall July grass.

(Supposed to have gotten T-storms, but none by late this evening. Still humid, though.)
