Well, today, it seems that spring has sprung!

2015 Spring robin!

Backyard inventory reflected a return of sounds and sights that haveĀ been lacking since November:

  • 2 red cardinals
  • 3 brown & orange robins
  • 1 black & white woodpecker
  • 1 sparrow
  • some grackles
  • 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! šŸ™‚

Spring is on its way!


Over at The Poetry Park, there is aĀ callĀ forĀ 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.

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-cappedĀ chickadee, I hear today’sĀ song.
