Red-eyed Vireo

Red-eyed Vireo, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 August 2022.
Red-eyed Vireo.

Here’s a picture of a Red-eyed Vireo. It’s a common species in the spring and summer woodland trails I hike with dog each day. These vireos flit around fairly high in the canopy, where the hardwood leaves provide good cover, and it’s a challenge to get a decent photo.

Today, this one paused and posed.

Otherwise, an interesting hike: heard (then saw, in high flight) a Greater Yellowlegs; heard the first Pileated Woodpecker in a while; saw a bunch of later-summer dragonflies and butterflies. I lovely morning.

Looks like tomorrow morning we’ll be hiking in rain showers. Which is better than fine. (We need rain.)
