A Fine Morning

Saturday, August 12th, 2023
Cedar Waxwings, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 12 August 2023.
Cedar Waxwings.

Cool and bright this morning. The birds remain quiet for the most part, although occasionally I could spy a little warbler poking about in the canopy along the wooded trail. An Osprey soared over the barrens up top, and waxwings crowned the spruces, as usual these days.

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