Getting Colder!

Cedar Waxwing

I spent a few hours birding at the prairie parcel and overlook area of Pheasant Branch Conservancy this morning. The highlight was spotting a flock of 31 Tundra Swans flying over the marsh making their way toward Lake Mendota. The temperature was in the low twenties and there was a fairly strong wind so it felt even colder. Tomorrow morning it will be only in the teens and this birder is going to stay home and drink coffee!
