Although not a rarity, it still is a little unusual to get snow around here, and it usually is gone within a day. Last night we got nearly 2 inches (with drifting up to 4 inches). A little humor there. I’m originally from Michigan and as a kid I can remember about 4 feet of it hanging around all winter.
Up in cold Canada, Dave Skinner wrote me to say that the Phainopepla was still hanging around. You can go to a previous post to read how that bird is very rare up there. He forwarded this photograph.
It is pretty cold out. The sun came out and about noon I ran out, or actually limped out with my Canon 7D. My hip is a little gimpy because of over exuberance bowling with my Wii game. 🙂 Anyway the snow is halfway gone now, but I grabbed off a couple of wintery shots to e-mail to a friend, but they weren’t anything great to post here.
I updated this site yesterday. If you notice I have a “blogroll” to the right here. I have put some links to some friends who all have some great photographs to show, and things to say.
I also added a page completely for San Angelo State Park. I have some good info there about the park, and I will keep you appraised of any thing new or unusual happening out there.
I found out from my friend down in Llano, that there two eggs in that Bald Eagles nest down there. I think that is a couple weeks earlier than usual. Best of luck to the little ones. 🙂
Here are a couple of my photos from a trip to the nest at Llano last year.
