Good Fri. +6 here after a little bit of snow fell yesterday afternoon, lining the tree branches with fluffy white stuff.

The birds have been active the past few days. The redpolls arrived (they never went anywhere, but they seem to hang out in the forest the first half of the winter and then descend on our feeders around Feb. 1. We still have black-capped and boreal chickadees, and there have been spruce and ruffed grouse in the yard. Also, I saw two moosebirds yesterday not far from the driveway, my first sighting of the year.

Local news is doggy.

We have this headline story: Body of woman found near Fairbanks homeless camp

Sad story. The comments are the usual mix.
