Fine Light

Veery (juvie), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 July 2023.
Veery (juvie).

Another warm and humid one, but with a bit more breeze. A mostly clear sky early, with fine light for photos. The birds were cooperative enough that I managed a few decent shots—including a fair pic of a juvenile Veery.

Notable was a one hummingbird near the summit—and a quick tramp down the Erickson Fields trail, which had cooler temps and more shade.

It’s raining as I write this, which should lessen the humidity tomorrow.
