October 26 – Anchorage Woodland and Estuary

It was a bit warmer today – starting at 19 degrees instead of 9. After a beautiful sunrise at about 9 am as seen from our living room, more clouds rolled in by the time in late morning when I went on my walk at the Campbell Creek Estuary Natural Area and the sun had a bit of difficulty coming through.

By the time I was finished with my walk , the temperature was up to 28 degrees, but it felt a little colder due to the wind. Birds seen included four Black-capped Chickadees, a Red-breasted Nuthatch, a noisily tapping Hairy Woodpecker and a Steller’s Jay quietly hopping about and investigating the tree branches.
