Digging in ground.
Surrounded by Ring-necked ducks
Is this the worst picture of a robin you've ever seen? Nevertheless, it's my first robin of the year so I'm including it.
Beak appears to be less than half head size and the nasal tufts are prominent, so I think this is a Downy. But I thought the Jan 25 ob was a Downy, too, and the pros called it a Hairy. Please help me learn the distinction. Thanks.
Included photo of beaver evidence.
About 6 or more Clark's Nutcrackers flew through the area, picking at pinecones.
Coyote was still, then suddenly pounced into the snow! Held catch for several seconds and then picked it up in his mouth and ate it. This photo was taken after his meal, before he pranced off.
All fluffed up against the cold--it was 7 degrees out!
Only one with a group of Canada Geese. Interesting to see the size difference.
