Yesterday’s Phenology: I miss having little animal notes to share in my phenology notes, but:

a. I don’t see many little animals

b. I don’t get out enough

c. When I do get out, I don’t see many little animals.

Yesterday started off with a dismal gray drizzle fog, which made for very slippery conditions indeed, as the temperatures slowly descended through the day. The streets were generally not terrible, perhaps due to accumulated salt residue, but the sidewalks were patchy and treacherous, and I very nearly lost my footing a couple of times. A steady breeze blew down from the NW, and the sky was clearing a bit in the evening.

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.
Song of the day: Charlie Hicks, As the Crow Flies
