Gung hay fat choy! Today is Chinese New Year 2021, the year of the ox. But today is also Abraham Lincoln’s 212th birthday, and I don’t have any photographs of an ox, so instead, I am featuring a Lincoln’s Sparrow. This little sparrow joined us on the East 90 in the Skagit Wildlife Area as we watched for Short-eared Owls. The tiny bird foraged on the edges of a frozen drainage ditch before venturing out onto the ice.
