Yearning for some more play-time in the snow, I headed up to Victory 
Bog today. It was snowing off-and-on and was quite windy, so not many 
birds were around (or at least they weren't vocal). Part of the trail 
had been packed down by someone earlier in the day, but I enjoyed 
breaking through the recent foot or more of powder to the dam below 
Bog Pond. Incidentally, it was out near the old logging road/stone 
foundation where most of the birds were active. The White-winged 
Crossbills were chirping away as they foraged on the few remaining 
cones, while the Pine Siskins were busily singing from their perches.
