Wore my winter coat this morning, ’cause the temperature was about 19° (F) and the winds were high. Fingers and lips got a bit number on the way up the hill—although Captain Jack seemed perfect comfortable—but on the way back down, with the wind at our backs, the air felt almost balmy.
Few birds again, but the buntings were still hanging out behind the hut. Also encountered a whole shoot-load of chickadees, quite a few yellow-rumps, etc.
Most notable? A pair of
Turkey Vultures. (Did not expect that—especially not on such a chilly morn.) And back home, a bunch of plain ol’ turkeys. And coots at Chickawaukie Lake, and a vee of geese flying over Route 1.
The temperature’s supposed to rise a few degrees by morning.
