Anticipation

Black-and-white Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 16 May 2022.
Black-and-white Warbler.

A later hike with dog this morning. Foggier than yesterday. But surprisingly birdy, nonetheless.

Highlights were a couple of hummingbird sightings (first-of-year birds), as well as the hoots from the bottomlands of a Barred Owl (also first of year, I guess you could say).

Still several species that haven’t showed up yet. Anticipation.

Froggy

Common Yellowthroat, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 15 May 2022.
Common Yellowthroat.

Cooled off a lot overnight, and dawn revealed a foggy landscape. Drippy trees, but only a little drizzle during my hike with my favorite dog of all time.

Nearly thirty species despite the lowery weather. No new migrants, but Wood Thrush and Scarlet Tanager again. (Two of the former, in fact.) Saw no one else on the damp hill until we’d almost finished our hike, when we met a little batch of kids being led in the drizzle by (what appeared to be) two dads.

(Start ’em young, young parents. Get those kiddos out in the woods.)

Corvids

Wednesday, May 11th, 2022
Common Raven, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 11 May2022.
Common Raven.

During our nearly three years in Utah, dog and I encountered a whole bunch of corvids—those smart, vocal birds like crows and jays. In fact, we’d nearly always come upon scrub-jays and magpies, with occasional ravens, rarely crows, and even more rarely, Steller’s Jays.

In Maine, I hear and/or see crows nearly every single day. This morning, I also heard Blue Jays—and I happened to hear the croak of a raven, as the bird flew over toward the bay.

I do love corvids, and I’ll miss those we got to know in Salt Lake City, but it’s sure nice to be back in the company of crows.
