Well, today, it seems that spring has sprung!
2015 Spring robin!
Backyard inventory reflected a return of sounds and sights that have been lacking since November:
2 red cardinals
3 brown & orange robins
1 black & white woodpecker
a chickadee or two
Looking forward to the weekend, despite the caution from weather experts that early spring will be a cool one.
Enjoy the new season! 🙂
BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE IN SPRUCE TREE
The Poetry Park, there is a call for Embracing Spring With Open Arms! This week, there are hopeful signs.
This is the first year, in quite some time, that all birds but crows and hawks seem to have vacated the city. Finally, today, some familiar sounds have returned, with little patches of colour in the bare tree branches, in the evergreens, too.
Black and Yellow
Looked out my window for signs of spring
none to be found, tho’ I heard a bird sing
Tree-top chatter has been silent too long
black-capped chickadee, I hear today’s song.
