We went for a hike through Hither Hills State Park, and the only bird of note was a phoebe. But upon reaching the trail end at Gardiner's Bay, we were treated to the sight of a whale, presumably a humpback, breaching a few times before disappearing. We could see about 10' of an estimated 30' length, completely out of the water. Nice way to recharge the psyche in troubling times.
