A Snowy Walk in Late November

It was a quiet morning with a light snow falling so it seemed like a good day to walk to Griggs Reservoir and see what birds were lurking about. The dramatic colors of autumn are now gone and one must be happy with a more subtle beauty. A light snow had come to rest on bushes and trees. Kinglets, waxwings, robins, nuthatches, and creepers were about with their winter calls creating a cheerful murmur as we walked. A surprise was to see an Eastern Phoebe, not a bird I would expect this time of the year.
