Savannah Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 October 2022.
Savannah Sparrow.

A little later, a little warmer than yesterday’s hike—perhaps a little calmer air, as well. All this combined to deliver a few more birds. And an interesting variety, from thrushes, to woodpeckers, to finches, to corvids, to sparrows—even my first waxwing in a while.

Most notable might’ve been the (very loud) Red-shouldered Hawk that appeared low above the trees—too low for a photo, alas, but you can’t miss this species’ call.

Busy otherwise today—a fruitfully busy one. Frankly, I could relieve this day forever and be content.

But tomorrow will come another one. And what’ll happen, no one knows.
