El Nino still holds on fast to many things, even though its time should be up. Global warming
has taken on a stronger foothold, so birds that should have been on their way to more southern climes are still with us in mid-December, like the Great Egret, juvenile Black-crowned Night-Heron, and even a vagrant Brown Pelican from the briny waters. I did not see the pelican yesterday, but my sources are very trustworthy, so I know that it was on Boomer Lake.
Rumor has it that winter will be warm and wet for the Great Plains, but the northern areas will be even colder and snowier. Good fortune to all, and keep warm.
