Common Yellowthroat (juvie), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 23 July 2023.
Common Yellowthroat (juvie).

’Tis the season of the juvie.

This morning’s hike with dog was short and quick, as I had an appointment that would cut things shorter than usual. But this morning’s hike happened also under sunny skies, which I first thought might mean fewer bird species than during yesterday’s foggy overcast—but no. I had more.

Notable was the fact that a couple of very young birds posed for photos—including a relatively fearless Common Yellowthroat.

After our hike, I met a friend and we walked to a saltwater cove and had a swim—first swim in a good while for me. It was a very good day.

(More sun coming for the rest of the week, or so they say.)
