Eastern Bluebird (juvie) in blueberry barren, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 17 September 2022.
Eastern Bluebird (juvie) in blueberry barren.

Another clear sky with a breeze from a favorable direction, but I didn’t expect early fall migration would grace me with so many species during my morning hike with dog. Thirty.

Notable additions to the usual suspects were a pair of hawks (sharpie and broad-winged), White-throated Sparrow (rarely seen since spring), Ruby-crowned Kinglet—and at the end of our hike we spooked an American Woodcock.

A week from today, dog and I will be Monhegan bound for an even more exciting glimpse of fall migration in action.

Late Summer

Savannah Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 11 September 2022.
Savannah Sparrow.

This morning’s early sky was thinly overcast with dappled clouds. A little humid, no wind. Rather quiet, bird-wise, for the most part—but they were still lurking in the leafy periphery and flapping soundlessly overhead.

Another Swainson’s Thrush (same bird?), a good-sized flock of robins, many chickadees, and a gang of roadside turkeys. Plus, a little family of Savannahs (my favorite sparrow).

In eleven days, it’ll be fall.
