Downy woodpecker, Glen Cove, Rockport, Maine, 29 January 2012.

Downy woodpecker.

A lovely, sunny Sunday. I worked for most of it, and only late in the day—as I drove with dog past Chickawaukie Lake—did I realize I could’ve been skating. But never mind, a hike would do. Only chickadees at Beech Hill, but a load of birds back at my place. Including spring-singing titmice.

For a while tonight I admired bright Venus, the waxing moon, and Jupiter, all hanging up there in the endless night sky.

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