I see Ashbridge’s Bay often in winter.
Quite different in June:
I will identify it at the end of the post.
This striped brownish bird is a female House Finch.
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking. – John Masefield (1878 – 1967)
