A July’s day

The Tree Swallows at home, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 01 July 2019.
The Tree Swallows at home.

Sun came out for a change. All that brightness and all those shadows kept the birds in hiding for the most port—that, and the presence of so many babies. But I got a peek at a fledgling Song Sparrow, spotted an angry yellowthroat with a beak full of food. Warm, breezy. Good quick hike.

Elsewhere, I spied turkeys, an Osprey, and a Cooper’s Hawk carrying a rodent of some kind.

All in the course of a July’s day.

Hike in a Cloud

Thursday, June 20th, 2019
Ovenbird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 20 June 2019.

Fog thicker than yesterday morning. Jewel-like droplets on everything. Too dim in the bottomlands to get many decent photo, but the thrushes were leery of dog and me. Also one particular chickadee. And ovenbirds.

It’s nice to get so far in the year that you know what’s nesting where.
