It's true. I'm extremely wimpy about the cold. I can pretty much handle any kind of heat, but cold? No, definitely not. I think it's always freezing up here (all year long it's roughly 55-62 as a high), and the low doesn't usually get lower than 43. But this week has been rough. It's 23 right now, what!? I can't handle that! I waited to go play outside today until 1 pm because that's when if finally got over 40. Call me a wimp, go for it, but I can't help it. I lose feeling in my hands way too easily, and that creates a problem when you have a camera with you.
So, I wandered over to the Humboldt NWR for a couple hours until I was about to crack from the cold. I did see a Peregrine get a shorebird again and fly right over me (ahhh..) but there wasn't much happening. But, I was walking really fast trying to warm up, so maybe I just missed it all. Anyway, there were two little fuzzball raccoons shuffling around in the reeds and this Red Tailed - his picture was very much rushed, i didn't really get to frame him how I wanted and he's not all that sharp. But still, I was happy he let me get one shot off before he had enough of my nonsense. There you have it.
