We've had snow and ice on the ground for a month now. While night time temperatures have been below freezing, the day time temperatures have moderated a bit, and areas in sunlight are starting to melt. The past three days, I've waited for it to warm up a bit, and have done late morning or early afternoon hikes here in Old Trail. Each day, I logged 16 to 22 avian species, and have a three day list of 25+ avian species. It was good to get back on some of the trails that have been treacherous the past few weeks. Here are a few of the photos.
