They cancelled school today for a forecast of late-afternoon snow. It's 2.42, well after high school, and there have been, perhaps, 10 total droplets of rain.
I went out and looked at some birds this morning. Here they are. Some are new to me:
Red Breasted Merganser
White Winged Scoter
Double Breasted Cormorant
Yellow-rumped warbler (female)- I saw a bevy of these down at Eva Bandman 'cross park. Hard to keep up with all of them, although flat light made them hard to ID. I had help.
Song Sparrow House Sparrow
And a usual mix of robins, cardinal, starlings, crows, and other little brown birds I couldn't identify. Same goes for the Eva Bandman area. There were cool water birds to look at, but the forest birds must have woken up from a slumber.
