A foggy morn. An overcast day. Heard a bunch of birds on the hill but saw only three or four.

Back home, I grabbed a portrait of a House Finch.

Gray ghost (male Northern Harrier).

I expected sleet or freezing rain first thing but instead awoke to a lull in the incoming weather. So Jack and I took a quick hike before breakfast. (Mine, not his.) Icy trail. Chill, strong wind.

Also a male Northern Harrier.
