These birds would fly out of the brush to the edge of the road without much fear of the people standing there waiting for THE sparrow. A huge noisy plow went by and they only disappeared for a few minutes before coming back to scratch at the edge again.
American Tree Sparrow
That is blowing snow, not fog!
I couldn't go on. I turned back, stopping only when I saw a Marsh Wren around the bridge. That was worth stopping for!
The trail - lots of blowing snow
It was cold today - 22 degrees when I went out at 1:30 pm and some serious wind chill made it much worse. The wind was fierce. The sun was not doing its job this afternoon either......
Yes, that is the sun. Pretty weak, if you ask me!
