Ragged Revisited

Saturday, June 24th, 2023
Red-winged Blackbird, Snow Bowl, Camden, Maine, 24 June 2023.
Red-winged Blackbird.

Again Jack and I hiked the Ragged Mountain Snow Bowl trails with our best dog and human friends. Warm again but not as bright, with rain in the late-morning forecast. Not the number of bird species as last time, but still a fun hike in a different place with a lot going on.

Saw my first bluebird fledgling up there perched on a lift cable. Also a starling clearly nesting somewhere up there among the gears.

Tomorrow it’ll be back to Beech Hill, but we’ll hit the mountain again soon, I bet.
