I've been trying to keep my spirits high through the awful death cold that has gripped me. I birded around the area a little bit today. The good old pond had a nice variety of ducks. Better than average anyway. Mostly, though, I pumped my body full of as many vitamins as I could. I'm taking this war on my health seriously. Hopefully I will win.
In honor of my glorious return to California. (Golden Gate Park, SF)
