Even Foggier

Hermit Thrush, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 06 October 2023.
Hermit Thrush.

Thicker fog, cooler temps, drippier understory—that about describes the meteorological conditions as dog and I headed up the main Beech Hill trail. Honestly, so foggy I didn’t think I’d get close to any decent bird photos. If in fact we I caught sight of any birds.

Right away I caught sight of several species moving around in the dim, drippy trees. And eventually I managed several pretty decent pics.

Supposed to be rainy tomorrow. We shall see.
