Nice Sightings

Sunday, September 3rd, 2023
White-tailed doe and fawn, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 September 2023.
White-tailed Deer (doe and fawn).

Cool and bright again this morning—but not quite so cool. In fact, the day warmed up pretty good by the time dog and I reached the summit. A noteworthy day, though, with a few nice sightings. Most noteworthy, perhaps was a whitetail doe and fawn that appeared in a little clearing far below us.

Bird-wise, also at the summit, I spotted my first yellow-rump since spring. and I spotted my first Nashville Warbler in months, down in the woodlands.

Sitting here this evening, I find myself wondering what tomorrow’s hike will bring.

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