Juvies

Common Yellowthroat (juvie), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 23 July 2023.
Common Yellowthroat (juvie).

’Tis the season of the juvie.

This morning’s hike with dog was short and quick, as I had an appointment that would cut things shorter than usual. But this morning’s hike happened also under sunny skies, which I first thought might mean fewer bird species than during yesterday’s foggy overcast—but no. I had more.

Notable was the fact that a couple of very young birds posed for photos—including a relatively fearless Common Yellowthroat.

After our hike, I met a friend and we walked to a saltwater cove and had a swim—first swim in a good while for me. It was a very good day.

(More sun coming for the rest of the week, or so they say.)
