Snow

Published by at 12:59 pm under Weather & Sky

Snow on the nestbox...no birds.  12 Feb 2008No birds anywhere.  It’d been snowing since last night with 4″ on the ground and it still keeps coming.  The snow is deep at the peregrine nest, but no footprints in the snow today.

Temperatures are rising and the weatherman predicts we’ll have freezing rain by 2:00pm.  

I walked to work, partly because I like walking in snow and partly to avoid driving in it. 

The only interesting bird I saw was a red-tailed hawk sleeping on a branch behind our building.  He looked headless because he had tucked his head into his back feathers.

The commute home – even on foot – will be interesting.

    of footprints in the snow…

    I saw footprints in the snow today on the webcam website

    well maybe not — there’s a lot more snow at the Gulf Tower webcam site. Perhaps the Cath of Learning camera is not on today.

    Dorothy visited the nest briefly around 3:30pm on Feb 13 and left some footprints, but it snowed a little more so they are nearly gone.
