I’m well aware I am in the minority on this, but I love winter. The solitude and beauty of winter cannot be unmatched. I love the winter visitors to our area and love traveling the cold, snowy roads to find them.

New species was Lapland Longspur.

I also started a log of when I would first see a new migrant for the season
Tuesday, February 23, Red-winged Blackbird
Friday, February 26, Turkey Vulture
Saturday, February 27, Killdeer and American Crow
Sunday, February 28, Grackle

Wintery Lake Erie being a total babe.
