Variety

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Pretty good variety this morning, bird-wise. About ten degrees (F) warmer than yesterday in the mountain shade—comfortable walking weather. Things started out rather quiet, but picked up soon enough.

On something of a lark, we followed a few deer trails across unfamiliar slopes, dog and I, which was interesting for both of us. Also followed a Juniper Titmouse around and, at quite a distance, spotted a Steller’s Jay in flight.

Perhaps my favorite bird of the day was an unassuming Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Rainiac

Yellow-rumped Warbler, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 09 October 2015.

Yellow-rumped Warbler.

I don’t mind hiking on a slightly rainy day. I don’t even mind hiking on a moderately rainy day, frankly—but not when I’m carrying my camera and expensive binocs. Today was only slightly rainy, though. At least it late this morning was when Jack and I hit Beech Hill. And I must confessed that that was because I checked the weather radar and saw heavier rain approaching, so…

O Canada, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 09 October 2015.

O Canada.

Still a riot of yellow-rumps up there, and again with kinglets (well, one) among them. A dim day, a damp day. A little chilly.

I dug it. I guess I’m something of a rainiac.
