Little nervous birds

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014
Black-and-white Warbler (female), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 23 August.2014.

Black-and-white Warbler (female).

Nice little surprise at Beech Hill today. Just as dog and I arrived, a little gang of chickadees was moving up through the trees along the road, and the chickadees—as they often do—had attracted a diverse collection of other little nervous birds. A couple of warbler species, a vireo, a nuthatch, sparrow, titmouse. I thought I saw a gnatcatcher, even, but now I don’t think so. (It would’e been my first there.)

Bay sails, from Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 23 August.2014.

Bay sails.

Warm and sunny, with not a lot of wind. Plenty of Saturday hikers. A private party (winners of a drawing benefiting Coastal Mountains Land Trust) was due to start at 5 p.m., so Jack and I came a little early.

Nothing could match that initial thrill today—well, other than how gorgeous a day it was. Sails dotted the blue of Penobscot Bay.
