Hazy overcast

Song Sparrow.

The day started sunny but developed a hazy overcast. Had an early disappointment which left me despondent for a while, but I got over it. And Jack and I had a good late hike.

Quail

Northern Bobwhite, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 22 July 2015.

Northern Bobwhite.

A lovely, busy, sunny day—topped off with a Beech Hill hike. Windy, though, and I heard few birds above the leaves—but at the summit, following a sudden call, I caught sight of my first Maine quail.

(Certainly an escaped bobwhite, but still.)

Cool and overcast here today, a long day of work with a short, sweet hike at the end of it. And on that hike, I had a chance to watch a couple pair of catbird parents feeding their secret broods.
