It was the coldest night of the season last night with temperatures going down to -5F/-20C. It was also windy so it felt more like -25F/-31C. I came down a little before 8:00am and the sun was just rising. This large bird of prey was sitting in one of our trees. I was not quite fully awake, but decided to try for a picture. I didn’t think I could go outside without scaring it off (and in any case it was really cold!) so I took the picture through the window. The result wasn’t terrific, but I thought it might make a half way decent silhouette.
