A Good Day

A day much like yesterday. A little nippier, though. And birdier.

Scores of birds descended on the neighborhood, scrounging old sunflower seeds and plucking miscellaneous berries. Even spotted a solitaire among them.

And on the mountain trail, I saw (or heard) nine species. Juncos all over the place. And on an opposite slope I spied an enormous mule deer buck, snoozing.

All in all, a very good day.
