Three Firsts

Baltimore Oriole (first of year), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 12 May 2023.
Baltimore Oriole (first of year).

The day dawned with a sort of humid haze that lasted much of the day. Temps in the mid-50s (F) as dog and I started up the wooded Beech Hill trail. And there wasn’t much wind at all. I had no expectations—other than hoping for another first-of-year or two. Welp, I got three!

Right off the bat, I heard the voice of a Baltimore Oriole, which kindly flew up to a limb above us. Coming up the upper trail, I heard the voice of a Nashville Warbler. And at the summit, I heard—then saw—an American Restart.

Otherwise, we met five trail friends (and three dog friends) and oversaw the blooming blueberries and rhodora and little wild fruit trees.

Gonna be another good ’un tomorrow, I can just tell.
