Making Days Count 12
Well I didn't start the day with apple pie and ice cream, but I did finish with it!

It was a windy snowy night, with twigs and branches strewn here and there. Luckily this area did not get the accumulation of snow that was forecast. Overnight we received about three to four inches.
There were clusters of small birds at the feeders this morning and one yellow warbler with an interesting countenance.
Although the snow started to melt during the day, the driveway remained covered, so after I came home from my walk, I started digging. There was no need of a jacket as the temperature reached a balmy 10C! The snow was wet and heavy, but I thought of it as good exercise. Here is a before photo of the snow covered driveway.
It seems that the snow parrot disappeared during the day, although he was still visible this morning.
For my walk, the roads were clear, and except for some gloopy corners, it was easy going. The lane was had a few inches of snow so there was a bit of trudging involved!
Harzel was in better spirits, with his view being much brighter.
Today a bald eagle flew into the picture which always adds a special touch.
Here’s a closer view of the eagle:

After the rather strenuous workout today, I decided to cook a roast beef dinner ... and had apple pie and ice cream for dessert. ;)
