Storm a-Comin’

Wednesday, November 30th, 2022
Tufted Titmouse, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 December 2022.
Tufted Titmouse.

Supposed to be cloudy all day, with high wind and rain later, so Jack and I headed up the main trail this day. Quite windy already, didn’t expect many species—and sure enough had only five by the time we’d gotten nearly back to the parking lot. Then things got interesting.

Nuthatch, Brown Creeper, titmice, chickadees all over the place, and a Downy Woodpecker. So sweet.

We’ll see how tonight’s (very) high winds turn out. Hoping not to lose power. We shall see.
