The day dawned bright and clear so we got to see the sun for several hours. Since returning on the 18th of the month it is now up for 4.5 hours. While doing wood chores a raven flew by, and then circled back to see if I was doing anything that might lead to a sorch of food. In the cold frosty air (-34F) the bird was covered with frost on the face and some of the breast feathers. This is the first bird of the year for me!
