Yellow Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 13 July 2022.
Yellow Warbler.

Got up to the trail head early, dog and I. And, wow, what a day.

Wild Turkey poult in tree.

• a first-of-year Chimney Swift flew over as we approached the summit
• a Wood Frog appeared on the lower wooded trail, expertly camouflaged
• a White-tailed Deer bounded away as we reached the summit (and for the first time I heard the alarm call of a white-tailed deer—since this one must’ve had a fawn or two nearby)
• a group of about sixteen turkeys flushed as we returned down the upper trail, with the many poults flying up into the trees

I’d redo this hike again, if I could. (Ahh, summertime!)

Beech Nut phoebe. (Eastern pheobe.)
Beech Nut phoebe

A warm morning, with mosquitos about. Cloudless, little wend. Felt a lot like summer.

Speaking of—I heard another singing Summer Tanager down in the bottomlands. Marched off trail for a while but never did get even a peak at the bird. Will try again tomorrow.

A lovely hike, with sweat galore,

Black-and-white Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 03 May 2022.
Black-and-white Warbler.

Another lovely Beech Hill hike with dog. A hike with a couple newly arrived warblers (at least as far as I’ve seen in our short time back here). Four species today, more to come for sure.

The lists are longer than those in Utah, so it takes me longer to compile ’em. Thus my narratives are liable to be shorter for a while (apologies). Suffice it to say Jack and I are thoroughly enjoying our return to this familiar hike and all the inspiring smells and sights and sounds and feels it brings.
