Alex Palmer's Natural History Notes and Thoughts

Thoughts and reflections on various social and environmental issues, as well as naturalist observations from the great outdoors.

The days are very short now, and the nights are bitterly cold. The ground is covered in snow everyday, and lake-effect flurries come down hard, even when the sun is out. Occasionally, in some shrubby areas that are out of the direct line of wind, Dark-eyed Juncos and Tree Sparrows scurry around eating fruits and seeds. Chickadees are around, too, making sure a hungry hawk doesn’t snatch anyone away.

We are now in the middle part of winter, and it will be consistently cold and snowy until the end of February.
