Summery Morn

Yellow Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 26 July 2023.
Yellow Warbler.

A surprise period of rain overnight left the trails damp this morning—which was not necessarily a bad thing, as the sun shone on dog and me as we started up the morning trail. Hiking conditions were warm and humid, and the our hike turned out to be pretty quiet, bird-wise.

But several did pose for photos, including a handsome Yellow Warbler in a birch tree.
