Field Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 21 July 2019.
Field Sparrow.

Got to the hill early, considering today was forecast to be perhaps the hottest day of the year. In the 70s (F) already by the time we began our hike, dog and me. Wildflowers, blueberries, dragonflies.

Plenty of birds were also about, along with a few humans. And lots and lots of monarchs. Humid. Steamy. Luscious.

Sure enough turned into a scorcher, with a high in the 90s in afternoon. Kind of dug it, actually

Full sun and humid this morning. Birds feeding fledglings all over the place. Also new plants and flowers and a monarch in the milkweed. More ripening blueberries, too.

Bluebirds and Blueberries

Sunny, warm morning—but with a cooling breeze. Very quiet early, although a few birds began to pipe up before long. Noteworthy was a bunch of parental activity: feeding the youngsters, keeping them in line, distracting a human and a dog from finding them out.

Bluebirds still looking to nest in the summit box. Phoebe in the north peak of the hut. And blueberries seemingly ripening fast.
