I heard a WOOD THRUSH from my bedroom window when I was first waking up this morning — first of  season. Left for my morning walk at 5:20 a.m. It’s 30 degrees out, and I’m cold. From my stone wall, I heard a HOUSE WREN, PHOEBE, CHICKADEE, BLUE JAY, CROW, and WHITE-THROATED SPARROW. When I started walking down the road I noticed a slender CRESCENT MOON visible in the sky over Camels Hump. Heard the veer note of the VEERY and a BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER singing from the woods just beyond my side boundary. As I walked on down the road I heard a ROBIN and the metallic chink note of the ROSE-BREASTED GROSBEAK. On my way down to Blood’s I heard a CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER, RED-EYED VIREO, BLACK-THROATED GREEN WARBLER, AND BLUE-HEADED VIREO. Got to the Nature Center  at 6 a.m. and heard a GOLDFINCH. Got to the Lookout at 6:10 a.m. Sitting on the bench, all I can think is that it’s really cold this morning. Even with all my layers on I can feel it in my bones. My nose is running, my hands are stiff, and in general I want to speed home to get warm. The sun just rose above the ridgeline. Will it warm things up? 6:20 a.m. I’m en route to Lichen Rock. Just heard what I think is a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER. Now I think I’m hearing a BLACKBURNIAN WARBLER. Maybe both species are hanging out in this area? Got to Lichen Rock at 6:30 a.m. It’s too cold to stand here very long, but it is a lovely morning with sun shining on the moss-covered rock near where I’m standing. I turned my 360 degree circle in both directions: the moving water behind the rock is loud and clear this morning — no wind and no WINTER WREN either. Headed downhill at 6:40 a.m. Heard a YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, a definite BLACKBURNIAN, and a BROWN CREEPER. Reached the road at 6:50 and finally heard a WINTER WREN. Home at 7 a.m.
