Nuthatch and Deer

Sunday, November 13th, 2022
Red-breasted Nuthatch, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 13 November 2022.
Red-breasted Nuthatch

Rained most of the night again last night, but an early morning lull corresponded nicely with the time of my morning hike with dog. Full sky overcast. Wet but not as wet as yesterday, windy but not as windy. And more bird species. Hard to photograph wildlife in such dim light, but I did get a half-way decent pic of a nuthatch.

Was even darker down along the wooded trail, where we surprised a white-tail. I watched it bound away, tail high, and disappear.

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