Around 6.45 AM, just after breakfast, we left the house. The slow sunrise paints the low clouds near the horizon with bright orange colors. The thermometer in the car shows -21°C; our visit started with a nice crispy morning.
The rest of the day we spent in old taiga forest. Here is one of its inhabitants: Willow Tit (Parus montanus). They look a bit different here (race borealis); their flank is much whiter.
