26 Jan/18

It's amazing what a little warmer weather and a slightly lengthened day will do. It's been above -10 for a week or two now, and the day is just a little bit longer. When I take the dog out in the morning (basically around 0730 every day) I hear chickadees as well as crows. It's still basically dark, but there seems to be enough light that they are up and about now. Woodpeckers are hammering on telephone poles, and the squirrels are chasing each other around as if to stake out territory. It's definitely still winter, but the hint of spring seems to be getting to some of the animals.
I walk the dog along the Red River at around the same time every day (1030), and in one section there are almost always several chickadees, nuthatches, and woodpeckers (mostly Hairy). If I come back later in the day, they are not around, so I assume they make a circuit on a daily basis, and in the afternoon are searching for food elsewhere.
