schedule change -- 'for me'?
Browsed Olean NY W State St/ N Union St environs -- making small purchases and a library visit, then Mexican take-out for the bus ride home. Waited in Lincoln Park for the bus, since Fullington office is located in a small space within limo-service/car service-station business premises -- then missed the bus departure by minutes. Then, crossed nearby bridge on Union St to hike along W River Road -- an enjoyable, warm and sunny walk after harsh wintertime conditions directly beside the guard-railed Allegheny River headwaters. Walked to Allegany NY (Route 60), then cellphoned a taxi-cab service which carried me in a minivan into Bradford PA (which also meant my short trip to Olean NY cost almost $70 total). Some brown beer bottles and lengthy cigarette drops seen in Olean city and alongside W River Rd in Catt County.
More small dead birds, a dead rabbit and a dead skunk encountered alongside Route 60, dead birds on Route 19 westward just outside Allegany NY festival zone (including featherless infant in roadway in front of Creekside Chapel).

Dead deer seen during southward mini-van taxi ride on Route 219 just before Limestone NY, at designated 'Deer Crossing' sign (now a multi-lane residential bypass that ends/narrows into two-lane Degolia PA).
