Spring?

It looks like spring might actually be here.








As I left the house this morning, just as the sun was rising, I heard morning doves calling, cardinals chirping and song sparrows living up to their name.








Yesterday an Eastern (Rufus Sided) Towhee showed up, the first of the season.








While he wasn’t suggesting we drink our tea, he did spend most of the day feeding in the yard.
