Spring, Cont’d.

Chestnut-sided Warbler (preening), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 17 May 2023.
Chestnut-sided Warbler (preening).

Another lovely spring day, but cooler, and with a lot of sunshine. Thought I’d have lot fewer species on my list this morning than I ended up with—a nice mix. First-of-year bird (which I didn’t confirm until I downloaded a blurry photo of it): Magnolia Warbler.

The few showers forecast for last night left no trace (if in fact they fell). The trails were drier than they’ve been for many weeks, seemed like. Territorial Ovenbirds were chasing each other though the woods. And had another random junco.

Now we wait for flycatchers, wood-pewee, and several other late nesters. Fun time of year.
