Spring is Coming!!!

Our first sign that spring is coming. We saw a fevver that goes away over the cold, snowy months. He was back at our feeder just a little while ago.

Mr Red Winged Blackbird is back. Mum got this picture around 1:10 PM central time today. If you look on the far right at the edge of the feeder you can see snow caught in the trumpet vine, vines.
Here, a few minutes later, Mr and Mrs Cardinal showed up for a snack. These guys stay around all winter. Nice to have a big, bright splash of color. Plus you can see the snow in the vines better too.

Plus next week, mum says the hour will go and hide in the clock for a while. So sunspots later in the day.

Yay for more variety in birdie tv and the wintering birds coming back to be entertaining.

Oh yes we savour that moment too. But our birdies aren't such bright colours. Yours seem to advertise themselves 'come on, eat me'! Happy spring guys.
