We have seen our share of gray skies and Snow in Connecticut over the last week. Nothing too bad but it seems to have put a damper on my local birding activities. I've had the occasional glimpse titmouse in the treetop or a junco in the juniper bush but it's been kind of quiet overall.
My wife and I took a winter break with a stay at an inn along the Mystic River but the snow followed us and there were no birds to be seen on the water. Still, it was nice to be able to take in the view and warm our bones beside the fire.
I rushed to get out for a walk yesterday afternoon when I saw there was finally a break in the clouds but had to settle for a glimpse of geese at sunset on the Connecticut River.
