Singing ’Rumps

Monday, April 10th, 2023
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 10 April 2023.

What a morning. Chilly to start, with a little breeze, but absolutely cloudless (rare her on the coast of Maine), and really interesting birdwise.

First-of-year note: A flock of about thirty Cedar Waxwings flew right by us, but I accidentally turned off my camera and so missed ’em. However, I did get a photo of one of many Yellow-rumped Warblers that were moving through—several of them singing.

Within a few days, I expect to see a Palm Warbler—and other incoming species.

Fun time of year!
