January 2011

The new year has begun, with a significant lack of snow. The single snowfall that we've had here is already melting away in the sun. We've spotted a lot of tracks in the snow and mud - white tail deer, fox, coyote, squirrels and rabbits have all been busy around our campus.

The winter birds are busy at the feeders. We frequently see black-capped chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, cardinals, juncos and blue jays.
