I am taking my time digging out. I was pleasantly surprised to see a huge Blue Jay
in a tree above. We got a foot over here but it is bad snow that is wet and heavy. The walk is 1/3 done and I have to get to the cars.
It is amusing to see the Blue Jay sit in a snow divot that I made. The lawn is exposed in that spot. There is a small family of sparrows that lives under the awning protected from snow and rain. They made their home above a porch light that we never use. I think I turned it on when it was below zero. The area is also protected from the wind as it almost always blows the other way
