We are in the depths of winter this week. Hight temperatures struggling out of the single numbers each day and lows either side of zero. There is a little more daylight every day and it is now 90 days until my first guided trip. You can still feel winter at the door though. I do not remember who told me that the chickadees begin to sing on January 21 each year; it was along time ago.
This has been quite the winter for vagrant bird sightings in our area. I am a very casual bird watcher but to like to know what species I am seeing and a little about them. This is the sort of information that I know my clients appreciate when we are out on the water. First there was a Barnacle Goose in Rockland hanging out with a flock of Canada Geese on the local football field.
We are in the middle of January and since it is Maine, we have enjoyed some brisk temperatures (-5 last night) and a little snow (actually snowing lightly here now). Not a record winter by any measure but this is Maine, if you don’t like the weather wait a minute. Who knows what the next couple of months will bring?
