Spring birds

It has been a tad warmer during the days of late and gradually, very gradually, the snow is melting the basement sump pump being called into action.  This morning the first Common Grackle of the year made an appearance in the garden at one of our feeders and was followed shortly thereafter by a Red-winged Blackbird.

The first migrators return – pretty much to the day as they did last year too … good mental calandars those birds keep!  Spring is stirring.
