Back from the southern states
After spending a beautiful week wearing shorts, tee shirts and sometime sandals, it's back to the freezing temps on New York. I picked up my big year efforts this afternoon by hitting up some "birding-by-car" locations on the island's east and south shore. Unfortunately, I haven't put up gloves back in coat pockets, so I wasn't about to go searching for songbirds. Hopefully, the snow won't continue on Saturday and we'll be able to get back out. Sunday, Dave and I will be out counting waterfowl as part of the NYSOA Waterfowl Count. Keeping my fingers crossed something unusual will be around..... time will tell.
