Some warmer this morning. Still muddy (reminding me of Maine), and with quite a few bird species right away. Ten species after about ten minutes, in fact—then no more for about an hour or so.

But a couple more toward the end (both heard only). Two corvids, four finches, two chickadees, two sparrows, a thrush, and a woodpecker.

All in all, a lovely hike with dog.
