In the Woods

Monday, October 8th, 2018
Pileated Woodpecker, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 08 October 2018.

Pileated Woodpecker (female).

Some maintenance work was happening on the main carriage trail, so dog and I climbed the (tick-filled) wooded trail for a change this morning. Interesting waves of little birds moving through the chilly air. At one point I heard the subtle drilling of a Pileated Woodpecker and managed to sneak up for a photo or two.

In the woods I feel at home.

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 07 October 2018.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

I can’t tell you how many Yellow-rumped Warblers were flitting around the hill this morning. Even if I’d felt like counting them there were too many to count. Scores, perhaps a hundred.

Other birds also—including a large flock of crows and four bluebirds flying over. Fall migration continues.

A fun time of year.

And So It Begins Again

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 13 September 2018.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Had a fun early hike this morning with dog. Calm, a little humid, not cold. Right away, I spotted a bunch of little songbirds flitting through the greenery—warblers, vireos, flycatchers. A little early fall migration action. Didn’t get great photos, but it was fun trying.

And so it begins again.

Note: Headed out west tomorrow for a few days. Hoping to have a post or two, but no guarantees!
