More Notes from the Trail
Went for a quick ski yesterday at Chapin Forest Reservation in Kirtland, Ohio. Ski rentals are available at the Pine Lodge Cross-Country Ski Center. The cold and whiny one was not in the mood, so we didn't stay very long. I knit a cowl for my son, but he said he didn't need it. I was so glad that I grabbed it. It kept my neck and ears perfectly toasty! Here are a few pictures.
I put a make-shift milk jug bird feeder up yesterday and the birds found it right away. There were blue jays, cardinals, tufted titmouse, chickadee, sparrows, and one that I didn't recognize. It is a Junco, which is a "snowbird" that is occasionally spotted at feeders in the Northeast. This cold, poofy robin was a rare sight as well.
