Snow squalls were the order of the day. It was warm enough that there was little accumulation, and most of what did stick melted off between showers. Late this afternoon a nice patch of blue sky opened up, letting the bright sun illuminate the snow-covered mountains (at least those that weren’t shrouded in the tattered clouds of active showers).
I took a brief walk to Totem Park to check out the many gulls and some ducks. I did see one immature Glaucous Gull, but nothing more unusual than that. I did not have a lot of time to spend, so it was just a cursory scan. I did notice herring eggs piling up in front of the visitor center. That may bode well for shorebirds at the park this year.
There seemed to be a lot more robins around today, and at least a couple of the ones around the neighborhood here were actively singing like they meant it (instead of the tentative songs I’ve mostly heard previously this year).
