If the calendar says it is Spring, it must be springlike weather somewhere. As I write this, it's 18F and it has snowed through blustery winds, both big flakes and little ones off and on for the past few days. The flakes drifted down, covered car windows, and then disappeared in a mysterious way. It's too cold to melt, so where does snow go when you aren't watching?
There is hope for Spring returning as there are signs of it in the neighborhood. Birds have come back and are serenading me from about 4:30am until mid-day and then they take a break, where they fly to, I don't know. Maybe they are having a snooze or collecting food and building up the old nests.
Sitting down with tea and something to read, I settle in to hear the birds start gossiping once again. Their music is beautiful.
Except for one bird who faithfully scratches his bony toes over a chalkboard and screeches, that's what he sounds like. He does this every day at 2pm. Every day. He continues for an hour or so, you can't tune him out. So annoying. Wish I could get him to a bird relocator and place him in a different neighborhood this year.
