Yesterday morning we were lethargic, but I kinda wanted to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count: Great Backyard Bird Count , so we got it together to walk to the old farm pond by his apartments. Alas, the snow fall made birding rather difficult, and we identified only 6 species. This morning, we woke to bright sun and scooted to Reedy Park without checking the forecast. Imagine our finger-numbed surprise to learn that it was 19 degrees this morning! The cold made it a short trip, with only a dozen different species.
Also, we noted that that bit of riverside railroad is where Ringling Brothers leaves the sleeper cars to the circus train. A 9:00, as we departed, a bus sat waiting to take people to the Coliseum.
