Brown Creeper, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 11 June 2022.
Brown Creeper.

Such a lovely morning. Mosquitos, sure. Ticks. Brown-tailed Moth caterpillars. But also a green, green woodland, and a fresh, fragrant breeze, and distant views of the bay islands, and birds—birds galore.

Had thirty-five species this morning (a couple more than I’d counted at the time), but only two other (friendly) humans and one (curious) dog.

Later—under warm, partly cloud skies—I took a good long bike ride, did a couple errands (but mostly just did it for the ride). Felt real good, man. I sooo missed cycling the past three years.

Now to see what tomorrow brings.

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