Oh so quiet!

A much nicer day today,


Blue sky and some sunshine.  We made our way over to the park, a bit easier than it was a couple of days ago…

Drifted in trail

but still a challenge as the trail is still really drifted in….  It was so quiet though!!! 

Black-capped Chickadee

a little flock of Black-capped Chickadees near the log bay…

Busy Chickadee

very busy – but that was it.  Not one single Eagle, the only duck I saw was one lone Bufflehead over my way.  There was a Northern Harrier coursing over the grasslands way off….not even a gull…

Nothing out there

maybe it was the wind but that shouldn’t have stopped the ducks from being here.  Maybe they haven’t returned since the water was frozen…very strange.  I had to go into Mission this morning (35km west of here) and there was a very large flock of Swans in a cornfield right on the outskirts of the town, so that perhaps explained the lack of swans…but not everything else.
