Spring is Here

Common Redpoll

Yes, it is!  The whole place has suddenly come alive again.  The crow couple has returned, and everywhere there are birds calling to each other, twittering, cawing, singing, honking.  

It was a sunny day, and to top it off, I saw my first butterfly of the season. It was one of the overwintering butterflies just released from its deep sleep, I think, a Compton Tortoiseshell.  I'll try to post a picture soon.

There is still snow here, but it is changing rapidly with the warmer temperatures.
