warmer coyotes

Warm weather returned today. On my way to work, the weather turned sunny if chilly. I stopped in a park parking lot and took pictures of cedar waxwings and a robin. As I sat in my car, a coyote crossed the road about 40 meters away. The coyote, a handsome youngster, soon vanished

By day's end, the temperature broke 18 degrees C., closer to our usual February average than to the frigid temperatures of late. I walked in Breckinridge Park, and saw a downy woodpecker,
numerous eastern bluebirds, Carolina chickadees, a tufted titmouse, a morning dove, and a red-bellied woodpecker.

I had a pretty good phone chat with my brother as a I drove home.
