The sun is out and it is blindingly brilliant outside in the snow. It is also 0°F (-18°C). There was a slate-colored (northern) junco outside at dawn. I have photographs but they are awful. It doesn't seem to want to return for the camera. After days of snow and clouds, the chickadees were sunning and preening. Too many chickadee photos on the blog? Not for me. I could take their photos all day for the rest of my life. I have been up sick all night but I know I will be back to work tomorrow.
