Today was quite the mixed bag, cloudy and windy this morning, snow squall around noon and then the wind died and the sun peaked out just a bit this afternoon.
This morning there was a huge flock of red-winged blackbirds in the front yard. Twice I tried to sneak up to the front window to take a picture and twice they somehow heard me and took off. I did manage to a get a picture of some morning doves and brown-headed cowbirds. Both the blackbirds and the cowbirds are migratory, so it was a great sign of spring to see them in the yard.
To try and capture the blackbirds I decided to head out for a walk. I was able to find a few signs of early spring along with the huge flock of blackbirds. Unfortunately, I was only able to get a few long distant pictures, but I could hear them. It was so nice to hear so many birds singing at once.
So while I didn’t get the great shots I was hoping for, here are a few “signs of spring” around my area. Do you have any signs of spring where you are?
