Thrasher

Saturday, August 6th, 2022
Brown Thrasher, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 06 August 2022.
Brown Thrasher.

In the wee hours this morning, dog and I were awakened by a lightning strike about a block away. Crack! (So near, there was no rumble following.) And then it began to rain. I checked the weather radar, and a solitary thundershower was basically centered directly above us—the only precipitation in the state.

By daylight, much of the rain had evaporated in the warm air, turning it muggy. And during our hike, the birds were quieter than on recent mornings. But, as always, we were both amused and inspired.

Most notable: a solitary brown thrasher popped up between the woods and open fields. A first-of-year bird.
