Spring Is In The Air

Ahhh.....the tell tale signs of spring. Every morning now we are hearing the beautiful sounds of the songbirds in our area. The feeders have more activity around them. Not so much for eating, but I actually think they are welcoming each other back after the winter months. Fred is back to carrying around his binoculars where ever he goes and trying to decipher the different songs that belong to the songbirds who are checking out the yard. The birdhouses are up and the scouting has begun with the male birds. Soon they will be calling their mates to check out the new homes they have found. If approved by the females, we will begin the enjoyment of watching them building nests. Ahhh.....the tell tale signs of spring.
