Nippy again but calm this morning. Lots of birds out first thing. On my early hike with dog in the blazing sun, we encountered a vulture, a Snow Bunting, assorted other species—including a whole bunch of thrushes.

Specifically, robins and bluebirds. I.e., the usual winter thrushes. And welcome they are on this last full day of the season.

Grebe, Revisited

Thursday, March 14th, 2019
Horned Grebe, Rockport Harbor, Maine, 14 March 2019.
Horned Grebe.

Snowed a little last night, maybe an inch and a half. Wet snow, scenic. Warm this morning—mid-30s (F). A lot of the snow melted by the end of the day.

However, during our mid-morning hike, dog and I encountered a lot of it still. Nice hike. First up the hill even though we didn’t start until 10. I cleaned out a couple bluebird boxes, got wind of several species.

No photos, though, so later we swung by the harbor. Low tide, but an accommodating grebe posed for me.
