The Saturday group has had some challenging weather including a morning of -30 degrees with the wind chill.
This morning the temperature was above zero for the group and the wind, though chilly, was endurable.
We were rewarded for our final winter walk with the presence of two Long-eared Owls:
His velvet wing sweeps through the night:
With magic of his wondrous sight
He oversees his vast domain,
And king supreme of night doth reign. – Elizabeth Sears Bates
