This Weather Situation Just Isn’t Right
When it comes to weather assessments, I have a very simple concept to consider. When the wind speed and the temperature are the same (or close to the same), the weather situation just isn’t right. For example, today the temperature was in the upper twenties to low-thirties. Also in that range was the wind, a relentless wind that just did not slow down. Needless to say, it was brisk when I went out to look for the juvenile black-crowned night heron.
I don’t know if the heron did as I suggested yesterday – moved on to a better wintering climate – or if the bird was simply remaining low and out of the wind. Regardless, I did not see the black-crowned night heron today. In fact, other than Canada geese, I did not see any wildlife. During my walk I did enjoy a pleasant conversation with a fellow who appreciates our natural world. Thanks for the discussion Jim!
Since critter pictures were out of the question on this cold day, I opted to photograph a few scenic type compositions.
