Cold bay, from Beech Hill, Rockport, Maine, 23 January 2013.

Cold bay.

Not much to report about the natural world today that doesn’t have to do with the temperature. Clear day, with quite a little wind—which brings me back to the temperature. I’m not sure it reached 10 degrees (F) today. And before Jack and I hiked Beech Hill in mid-afternoon, I bundled up like that kid in A Christmas Story. Heard a few chickadees, heard one crow.

Didn’t hear or see much else, though. And right now, tonight, with still a little breeze stirring, my thermometer reads zero.

Bird Report is a (sometimes intermittent) record of the birds I encounter while hiking, see while driving, or spy outside my window. —Brian Willson
