Clematis vitalba (or occidentalis, according to maine.gov) is a non-native, invasive vine. Reportedly only found in a few states in the eastern U.S., which explains why it was difficult to identify, until a neighbor with a plant i.d. app took a photo. In seconds, there it was. Found in Chesterville. (Photo by Don Blanchard)

    You got a great photo of the Robin with a berry in his mouth.

  2. Very nice!,thank you to all🙂

  3. Fantastic shot of the American Robin, Tom!

  4. Great shots Tomas' ---- Robin with berry was great, You have the touch with all those warblers.....but today, we got a northern jacana on the Santa Cruz at Ina. Watched the adult male for about 40 minutes.

  5. Thank you everybody for the lovely pictures again this week. It is a joy to observe the wildlife and scenery in these pictures that you give us.

  6. That's probably the best foliage that will be seen, since many trees around here have been stripped by wind. Tom, the palm warbler & woodpecker look like exquisite oil paintings, not photos.
