Foggy, Drippy

Northern Cardinal, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 21 May 2022.
Northern Cardinal in the wild.

Slept well enough last night that dog and I were a couple hours late to the trailhead. A foggy, drippy, luscious day. Many bird species were quieter than usual, but their numbers were high.

Most notable was a first-of-year Black-billed Cuckoo, whose voice came clearly from the bayberry tangles down the eastern slope.
