My posts have been focused on narrative rather than photos lately because the first couple of weeks in February have been gray, rainy, icy, and dreary. As a result, I haven’t been very motivated to take photos. Plus I’ve been quite busy with my research and writing — which is, of course, my main purposes for being here but which does mean I’m not off having blog-worthy adventures.
After crazy windstorms earlier this week, we are back to snowfall. In the United States, we call people who move south for the winter months “snowbirds.” While walking through the park today, I took a photo of this guy because he is a real snowbird. I don’t know what kind of bird these big black and gray birds are, but I am impressed that they are hardy enough to stay around for the winter.
