Is Spring just around the corner?
I spent 15 minutes outside this morning before work. I fed the ducks and enjoyed quiet morning air. As I was standing at the edge of the creek I saw the first robin of spring. Overjoyed of course, I stepped closer to see him, next to that robin was another, and yet another. Trying to keep track of them all I counted about 25 of them coming in for a landing on the creeks edge that was covered in ice. This was all unfolding as the 24 ducks ate on the bank next to me. It was wonderful to see all that activity. The cardinals were out and the blue jays, and I even saw two cedar wax wings. It was a busy morning for the birds, heres hoping that spring is just around the corner.
