The sun has finally come out and the temps have warmed up a bit, slowly. No more snow in the forecast for the midwest, unlike states like Colorado. We took down our bird feeders (too many unwanted critters wanted to share the bird seed) and put away the birdbath (no mosquitoes this year, please), but luckily the birds have been coming on their own. Finches and black capped chickadees have been singing away in the trees, robins and starlings prowl the wet grass for worms and insects. A few sparrows are fluttering about among the trees. So happy to see them all.
