Sprung!


This has to be Birdcouple's favorite post each year. We don't care that the calendar says there are still two weeks to spring. We know that it's sprung.


And these lovely purple crocuses (croci??) in Lisa's garden aren't the only sign. In our area, large flocks of geese and other waterfowl have been seen heading north. Osprey, recently arrived from South America, have begun to be spotted here and there. Yesterday, we saw Tree Swallows twittering and diving near the Potomac River, and heard an Eastern Phoebe doing its fee-BEEE! thing.

Come on flower blossoms and warblers! Soon....

Crocus on March 6! - It's not the 25th, and my crocus look like they want to crawl back into the ground!
