Morning conditions did not look favorable for birding, 9 degrees F and  
snowing,  but the day turned out well thanks to good feeder  activity.  Met 
three homeowners, [feeder operators], who were most  hospitable and interested 
to have someone check on "their" birds
Covered more than 80% of roads in West Haven that for the most part were  
open and plowed.
