A cool, cloudless morning. Dog and I arrived at the hill in time to hear the sounds of early bird species awakening—and, later, the music of later sleepers. A couple of oddballs (including a Song Sparrow that began its tune with two clear, ringing notes of differing pitches.

My favorite of the day, though, were the juvie bluebirds.

Chipping Sparrow.

Each year is different. This one’s had way more mosquitos than usual—and also Chipping Sparrows. Don’t know how come the species has been reproducing like crazy, but these days it seems like every conifer you wander past has got some serious chatter of adult and fledglings.

Rained all morning, cleared up in afternoon. Dried up in a hurry. Cool, a bit breezy. But as we didn’t get to the hill until mid-afternoon, the birds were somewhat scarce.

Had nice interactions with fellow members of the human species, though.
