Cool Morning

Glimpse of Pileated Woodpecker, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 31 August 2023.
Glimpse of Pileated Woodpecker.

My hike with dog commenced on this cool morning—“cool” in both senses of the word—with a stout breeze and near-cloudless skies. Not as many species as yesterday, but an interesting assortment. Many tits, a juvie thrush, and a photographic glimpse of a Pileated Woodpecker.

Tomorrow’s supposed to be a similar day, weather wise.
