Herring Gull on a snowy morning.

Awoke to snow, a couple inches of wet stuff cloaking everything. Kind of fun, really. Jack and I were the only ones on the hill this morning—other than a few birds, I mean. No great photos, alas, but I spied a kestrel and heard redpolls and a raven.

No photos elsewhere, either, even after the sun came out in afternoon and melted most of the snow. But I did spot a woodcock out back this evening. That was cool.
