This area borders on the Delaware River to the east, the Lehigh River to the north, west to the town of Hellertown, and south to the Bucks County border. There's a valley with preserved farms in its middle, which is where I live, but the rest is primarily lightly populated residential areas on hilly wooded areas.

There was 2-3 inches of snow on the ground and it was very cold. Temps started at 14 degrees and ended at 15 degrees. Had we been doing a CBC it would've been a great day as there were flocks of sparrows, juncos, etc., along every roadside. Otherwise the numbers were average. I have both sharpies and Cooper's in the yard or fields here just about every day but we didn't pick up any accipiters on the route.
