The end of a perfect Winter day today. Marking almost the middle of the month the temperature was up to 11 degrees C and it was sunny. Every Sundown here, the Crows flock together and head down south to where the roost for the night. I don’t know where exactly, but it must be a noisy place, when they all gather! Also in this shot is a flock of Gulls heading inland for the night.
A pair of Mallards (Anas platyrhychos) on a log, in a bog!
An occasional visitor to our garden is the Chestnut-backed Chickadee (Poecile refescens)
Here’s a couple of House Finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) The male on the left. Judging from their name they probably wish they were in Mexico right now!
It makes me wonder what this little Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) is thinking as the snow falls around him! Probably yearning for warmer days! Me too!
