10:48 a.m.

It's an overcast morning with light snow flurries.

Around 10:40 a.m., I saw a Fox Sparrow forage at the north end of the west spirea bed. I watched the bird forage for several minutes. It foraged next to the leaf litter that is piled at the base of the spirea bushes. Earlier this morning, I scattered seed on the flower beds. The Fox Sparrow, however, continued to use its jump-forward-kick-back ground-scratching technique to find seed.

Barney and I walked from 8:55 a.m. to 9:58 a.m. Pleasant walk. Low overcast. Light wind. Temps in the upper 20s. Light snow flurries fell during the entire walk. Barney did great. The crisp air felt good. The snow flurries were a nice touch by Mother Nature. The flurries clung to Barney's back. Barney has long hair, except over his face, since that hair was trimmed, during Barney's last visit to the groomers in late February. I had planned to get Barney a buzzcut in late March, but I don't if the groomers are opened. Anyway, this morning's walk was excellent, and I did not want it to end. Maybe we will walk again later.
