Alder Flycatcher (first of year), Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 19 May 2022.
Alder Flycatcher (first of year).

Had three more first-of-year birds this morning, much to my surprise and delight. Just about every hike with dog has been a delightful surprise since our return, in fact. This morning’s brought first Veery, Great Crested Flycatcher, and Alder Flycatcher of 2022.

A nice hike otherwise, too—chilly, but not too chilly, overcast but not too overcast. Also interesting were the four Wood Ducks that showed up in the green grassy lawn next door.

Rained this eve. Supposed to get warmer this upcoming weekend.

Palm Warbler.

The blackbird hangs around. I got a couple half-way decent photos. Also a Least Flycatcher and a Palm Warbler. (Many palms today.) Hated to have to leave—the snake I saw swimming across the Ice Pond kind of made up for the bittersweet return trip inshore.
