Drizzly morning, little breeze, sparrows everywhere.

Mostly juncos, but many song sparrows, a white-throat, and a fox. Also several other species—flock of redpolls, fighting male bluebirds, robins galore.

Possible drizzle again tomorrow. Likely more sparrows, too.

Fox Sparrow, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 28 October 2018.

Fox Sparrow.

The sparrow influx continues. This drizzly morning—which followed a wild, wind-whipped, rainy night—brought five sparrow species (along with nine others). Most exciting was the Fox Sparrow that greeted us both on ascent and descent. It’s been a few years since I’ve encountered one of those up there.

A chilly, misty morning, but well worth the hike with dog.
