This Sunny Morning

Alder Flycatcher, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, 22 June 2019.
Alder Flycatcher.

Flushed two woodcock this sunny morning. Flushed one of them twice. All three times I hunted carefully for youngsters but didn’t see any—although I didn’t want to pester the woodcock families too much.

Also saw my first Beech Hill Bobolink in at least three years. Also, somehow, ended up with thirty-three species on today’s list.

Later today there came a couple of thundershowers, which was fun.

More fun tomorrow.

Low-key Inspiration

Common Yellowthroat (male), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 19 June 2019.
Common Yellowthroat (male).

Fog first thing, a deep overcast. Birds weren’t talking much, but neither were they silent. Heard an alternate cuckoo call up in the area where I nabbed a photo of one the other day. Got a photo of a yellowthroat.

A low-key but inspiring morning.
