Woodpeckers

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022
Common Yellowthroat (fem.), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 August 2022.
Common Yellowthroat (fem.)

Things began slow again this morning—about a half-hour earlier than yesterday—but the sky was clear, the air cool and dry to start. Nearing the high point of the wooded trail, the woodpeckers began to call. A downy, a hairy, a red-bellied, a flicker—I love when the woodpeckers show up.

Otherwise a little slow, but with beautiful scenery and another waxwing-thrilling fly hatch. (And a few nice chats with humans along the way.)

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