Cool, Breezy

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.)

Northern Flicker (photobombed by whitetail), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 30 June 2019.
Northern Flicker (photobombed by whitetail).

Rained much of the night. Stopped long enough for a morning hike with dog. Damp, green, humid, lush. Interesting walk—including a first-of-year patch of fireweed (ate my first blossom of the year, yum), Mourning Dove singing from the chimney of Beech Nut, Philadelphia Vireo singing by the road, A white-tail showing up in a photo I took of a flicker.

On way back home I stopped in traffic on Route 1 to let a little family of Mallards cross.

More rain later. Precipitation is generally not a bad thing.

Wave upon Wave

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 02 October 2018.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Another rainy morning, but Jack and I managed to miss most of it early. Our hike was marked by wave upon wave of Yellow-rumped Warblers—scores of them moving through. Also vireos, sparrows. And a Wilson’s warbler that posed for a moment not ten feet from me, but with the dimness (and my one-handed camera grip) I didn’t manage a photo.

Oh, well.
