Today was a beautiful day. It got up to about 45 degrees and it felt amazing out. And because my afternoon class got canceled I was able to be outside. I went to Holliday Park and took a nice walk there and then moved onto the Ecolab here at Marian. I was able to go birding there. It felt great to get back outside and start birding again. It had been almost fourth months since I last went birding, or even hiking for that matter. The sun was shining, the Cardinals and Chickadees were calling, and the sky was clear. I found some good birds and just as I was ending my hike I found this guy. He was climbing around a tree and playing in the melting snow, happy for the warm weather. He let me get a few shots and then went on his way. It was a nice end to a beautiful day outside.
