Ring-billed Gull in the low sun

Posted on Nov 16, 2014

Winter is coming. This Ring-billed Gull’s face is illuminated by a low sun as our days are becoming shorter and shorter. Are you ready to feel the coming season in this week’s weather? Snow and frigid temperatures, in relative terms for mid-November, are on the way as waterways freeze even faster than last year. Lake Superior has ice supposedly a full 10 days ahead of fall 2013. However, I doubt we will see the heart of this winter nearly as cold as that extreme season. Bundle up!
