Snow Bird Day

2015-02-18 14.40.58

It’s been a rough week. On top of everything else, the kids have been off school since last Thursday–six days straight due to snow days, President’s Day, and school conferences.

On the bright side, the weather has brought out many different birds.

I can’t tell for sure but I think that’s an American Tree Sparrow above but I’ve been through three bird books and still don’t know.

A while back I photographed a gull that I didn’t know if it was a Herring or Ring-billed gull. I saw several of these today which were significantly larger than the earlier ones. The ID books say that Herring gulls are big ones. Unless something else comes up, that’s the identification I’m going with.
