Got up before dawn to chase a few birds this morning . . . got one and missed the other.
The success was a Northern Pintail in York Maine, a duck that the field guides say should not be in Maine this time of the year.
The second bird was a Dickcissel in Wells, Maine . . . I think I heard it singing . . . but had to get to work and abandoned my search.
Snapped this American Tree Sparrow, as I was getting in the car.
