Yellow Warbler (male), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 07 July 2023.
Yellow Warbler (male).

Another clear and warm and muggy morn with interesting bird activity. Heard many youngsters of various species begging for meals; heard the call of a Red-bellied Woodpecker; saw both Turkey Vulture and Wild Turkey.

Most notable: a group of three or four fledgling Purple Finches giving their parent finch(es) reason for some frantic hunting-and-feeding activity.

Tomorrow morning’s supposed to be foggy. We shall see!

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