Gray Catbird, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 12 May 2022.
Gray Catbird.

Had a good sleep and awoke to a semi-foggy yet rather warm morning. Checked online and found that the overnight wind direction was south. Decided 12 May might be an auspicious day.

And, by golly, it sorta was: most species in Maine so far, along with four first-of-year birds—and ten warblers total. (Three of the warblers were first of year.) Also got my first photo of a catbird, which was something of a thrill. We also surprised a White-tailed Deer down the lower wooded trail, and I got to watch how they fly in great bounds through the understory (unlike the Mule Deers’ funny hop through the scrub.

Back home, had another few nice looks—including a turkey in the west yard. Plus, as a find bonus, I rode more than eight miles on my bicycle (first ride since I lived here last—lovely).

All in all, a very nice day.
