Tanagers

Least Flycatcher, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 28 June 2022.
Least Flycatcher.

Cooler and damper after yesterday’s rain, sunny with a bit of a breeze. I truly had no expectations, just figured I’d hear and/or see a few birds, maybe learn a thing or two.

And I did—both. Notably, I heard/saw a Least Flycatcher, and spied a Red Crossbill (fem./imm.—first I’ve seen on the hill) high on a spruce at the summit and, in the woods toward the end of our hike, I heard two species of tanager.

First was a Scarlet Tanager, which I hunted for up in the leafy canopy but could not get a look at. Finally I spotted the bird apparently being chased by another tanager. And then I heard the voice of the other tanager—a Summer Tanager. Couldn’t get a good bead on that one, either, although I did watch it fly away

I’ll be keeping my eye peeled for tanagers going forward.

Song Sparrow.

The highlight of this foggy morning hike, bird-wise, were the several appearances of the resident Song Sparrows—including one who popped right up and sang to dog and me.
