A Harbinger of Spring

Spring will soon be here.  It's been an easy winter, and spring is in like a lamb.  The geese are here, large flocks, and so are the crows and red-winged blackbirds.

Every year we have hummingbirds in the yard.  There is usually a family nesting in the spruce tree beside the house.  They arrive mid-May and I have their food waiting for them.  We always follow their progress on the internet.  Right now they're as far north as Tennessee and Oklahoma. Check this map out, it's pretty cool.
