Woods, Field, Sky

Glimpse of Mourning Dove, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 October 2022.
Glimpse of Mourning Dove.

Another clear cool morning, with a slight breeze. Really beautiful fall woods and fields and sky. Also quite a few birds on the hill.

A couple of thrush species, a couple of corvids, a couple of finches, a couple of woodpeckers, a couple of nuthatches, four sparrows. A gull. Many, many yellow-rumps (again). Other native year-round species—and a kestrel at the end.

Cloudy tomorrow, some rain next week. A rich and varied place this is.

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