Eastern Bluebird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 31 October 2022.
Eastern Bluebird.

Blue sky. Bluebirds. Blue Jays.

Chilly at first, with a half-overcast sky, but then the clouds flew away and the sky turned clear and blue. Mostly the usual suspects—including a large gang of robins—but bluebirds again, which is always nice. And along with the bluebirds, high up in the trees of the spruce grove, a random Blackpoll Warbler appeared. First warbler other than a yellow-rump I’ve seen in a couple weeks, at least.

Warmed right up today. Seems warmer than it used to be. Not complaining, exactly, but the climate, it is a-changing’.

Mostly only Red Oak leaves remaining, and those should be falling soon. November on the way.

Chilly Morning

Savannah Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 15 September 2022.
Savannah Sparrow.

A chilly morning (low 50s (F)), a cloudless morning (other than a line of clouds far out in the bay), with a stout gusty breeze. I had no expectations, but I thought of the possibility of some interesting migrating birds.

As it happened, there were birds of interest—notably a random Blackpoll Warbler up in the greenery between the woods and open fields—but mostly the usual suspects. Along with a couple “big birds” in flight (Turkey Vulture and Common Raven).

Twenty-four species, though not many numbers of each. Those numbers will increase, though. Looking forward to it.
