Eastern Bluebird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 31 October 2022.
Eastern Bluebird.

Blue sky. Bluebirds. Blue Jays.

Chilly at first, with a half-overcast sky, but then the clouds flew away and the sky turned clear and blue. Mostly the usual suspects—including a large gang of robins—but bluebirds again, which is always nice. And along with the bluebirds, high up in the trees of the spruce grove, a random Blackpoll Warbler appeared. First warbler other than a yellow-rump I’ve seen in a couple weeks, at least.

Warmed right up today. Seems warmer than it used to be. Not complaining, exactly, but the climate, it is a-changing’.

Mostly only Red Oak leaves remaining, and those should be falling soon. November on 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
