Engaging Ramble

Thursday, May 5th, 2022
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 05 May 2022.
Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Yet another wondrously engaging ramble around Beech Hill. Still remembering—finding places where I saw various birds or bird behaviors—and yet soaking up the smells and feels (the dewy air) and sounds of coastal birds of the 44th parallel.

Hard to choose a highlight from today, there were so many sweet moments. I suppose (ironically) it might’ve been when I spied a white-tail staring up at us from a tangle of little trees.

Already looking forward to our hike in the morning.

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