On day 2, I set out like the lone ranger , a black scarf wrapped round my face to keep out the -25 wind-chill and about 3 layers of clothes.
I had a great 2 hours checking out Buena Vista Park and some surrounding back alleys, but still ended up with a freezing face. The mask becomes annoying after awhile. I have no idea how Batman does it.
For day 3 , myself and 5 members of the Nature Society walked around Montgomery, spending 2 hours looking around for signs of birdlife.
Today, ( day four ) the weather turned nasty again, with overcast skies and falling snow, but a few birds were still found of course :-)
Here are the 20 species I was able to see during the count period :
Sharp-shinned Hawk :
Hairy Woodpecker :
Common Redpoll :
