And now for something completely different. Have birded Sabine Woods in lots of conditions through the years. So how could I pass up the chance to do it in the snow ? There was a very otherworldly feel to it but it was striking. And a few birds were there as well.

A feel for the snow depth, roughly one to two inches everywhere it accumulated.

Seemingly all area Killdeer were gathered on the roadside to avoid snow.

Flushed from roadside ditch just west of woods. Extended look flying. Didn't realize how much they resembled a winged dumpling.

Female plumaged bird, distinctive chip heard first, then offered extended views. Don't think I've had one this time of year.
