Nothing says spring to me like the sound of a redwing blackbird. The past few days they have been in my yard by the hundreds
They’ve been cleaning up around the feeders.
Although there’s safety in numbers they are a cautious lot and spend much of their time landing and taking off.
The sight and sounds are amazing. Add it to a 60 degree day and I can almost breathe a sigh of relief but there’s still way too much snow. Mud season has only reached my driveway.
