Snow!

In the early hours of Saturday morning snow began to fall--continuing into the afternoon, to a total of 15-20 cm.

At the edge of the far field.

It's cold and winds are brisk--but it's beautiful.

In the high open areas at the south end of the scrape the wind scours the snow.

When it warms up a little this afternoon I'll be going out to check tracks. All I saw yesterday were what I think were probably red squirrel tracks and tunnels in the first field.

The Bohemians are still around.

I love the photos of the snow patterns- and please send a bohemian southwest before spring arrives. I haven't viewed one in way too long. In fact we haven't had very many boreal species at all this season- no common/hoary redpolls, no pine grosbeaks.. not even very many snow buntings. Winter doesn't seem like winter without snow buntings.

Thanks Cindy. I'd send the Bohemians your way for a visit if I could--interesting what these boreals do. My pine and evening grosbeaks have gone off somewhere, but I'm still seeing common redpolls, and one pine siskin turns up among the goldfinches.
