A lovely brisk morning, a bit of wind, a bit below freezing, a bit of wind. Lots of birds about, including a couple first-of-year species—including my first Horned Lark in better than a year.

Also the first photo I’ve ever taken of one that actually shows the “horns.”

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