Cool, Breezy

Monday, July 15th, 2019
Gray Catbird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine 15 July 2019.
Gray Catbird.

Nice cool, breezy, sunny morning. Lots of bird activity—highlights being a singing Northern Parula, and a Philadelphia Vireo that appeared in the summit spruce grove.

Met a fellow birder and had a nice chat about photography.

Got home and put a tonneau cover on my pickup. (Just threw that in for factual authenticity.)

Full sun and humid this morning. Birds feeding fledglings all over the place. Also new plants and flowers and a monarch in the milkweed. More ripening blueberries, too.

I didn’t expect a lot of bird activity in the thick, cool fog of this morning. Yet again, I was pleasantly surprised.

No first-of-year birds, but a wide selection—among them a few that actually posed for photo.
