Winter Phenological Changes/Winter Twigs

Since my last visit in the fall, much has changed. There are no leaves on any trees and the only color on the landscape are the few winterberry bushes by the edge of the river. There is some ice cover on the bit of standing water towards the shore, but the river is mostly still flowing. However, it is a much more quiet stream than last visit.
