Links and Notes - Thu, Jan 30, 2020

2:54 p.m.

Today is at least our 7th or 8th straight day with an overcast sky. Today seems more like late November or early December. Heavy overcast. Low light.

At least a dozen SCJU foraged on our backyard early this afternoon. I scattered more millet on the ground this morning. It's the only bird seed that I have used this winter.

Overnight, we received a skiff of snow that covered sidewalks and rooftops and dusted lawns. Barney and I walked from 9:00 a.m. to 9:38 a.m.

During our walk, I heard the following birds:

Temps today have remained around freezing all day. The skiff of snow has melted.
