Beautiful Maine Sunrise

IMG_2258This was the view from our Maine deck this morning when I arose early to enjoy the dawn chorus.  I was looking out over a passage called “The Thread of Life” which allows boat traffic to pass from the Boothbay Region to Pemaquid Point.  With the summer solstice just a day or two away, this is the furthest north the sun rises.  In mid-winter it rises just south of Monhegan Island.  Our dawn chorus today began with the Northern Parula’s buzzy notes climbing the scale, followed by a Yellow-rumped Warbler right above my head in a Wild Cherry tree.  Ah, the fresh clean air of a tension-draining new day in Maine!
