8170It's Winter Listing Time...
- Dec 1, 2005Good Morning To All,
Our neighbours to the east and west of us keep track of
their 'winter' birds, and as Ryan has suggested let's see how many
we can tally between now and the end of February.
This cool -15 morning saw me out sweeping the skiff of overnight
snow off our driveway before taking Brandon to school. My first
winter species was (thankfully) a Black-capped Chickadee---"dee-
deeing" nearby. Upon my return I finished off the front sidewalk.
By then a noisy mob of good old House Sparrows were awake in our
neighbours Spruce trees and were species number two.
My truck is getting winterized and had to spend the night at the
local garage. When they're done with it later this morning, it's
time to bring the Focus in. I don't have to work today, but don't
know how much more birding I'll get in...
