Nice Winter Walks

Merry Christmas (a little late in coming) and Happy New Year (right on time).

Last Saturday was the Heber Valley Christmas Bird Count. Our numbers were few - we only had 9 birders covering quite a bit of area. And though we didn't see a lot of birds (48 species total - maybe a record low), we had some good ones, like Tundra Swans, Wood Ducks, Great Horned Owls, and others. But it was a great day. The weather was cold, but clear.

It got me in the mood to get out again. So yesterday I decided to take a little walk along the Jordan River. It was a great, snowy walk.

I think I need to go back out today since I have it off - required furlough from work.
