Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 29 September 2022.
Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Had appointments this morning, my return hike to Beech Hill with dog didn’t happen until late morning. Didn’t expect too many bird species; didn’t encounter too many. However, I encountered a lot of birds.

Mainly that’s because of the numbers of Yellow-rumped Warblers. (I settled on 30 individuals, but I believe that’s rather low.) Also had at least a dozen White-throated Sparrows—probably more like sixteen. And a goodly number of chickadees.

In just the five days were were on Monhegan, the color of the landscape has changed—much more yellowish, with reds in the fringes. It’s happening.
