Most Decembers are a quiet time for birding in Maine . . . but this year Maine is the Big Year Destination of the country as the Great Black Hawk continues to hang out in Deering Oaks Park in Portland. Ingrid and drove through Portland yesterday and at least a dozen birders were watching the GBH . . . in the pouring rain no less.
On a more mundane note . . . a Brown Creeper hung out just outside our living room window this afternoon. We usually have one or two wintering around our house each winter.
