New Early Arrival

New Early Arrival
Originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer

Woke up this morning feeling dizzy. Not sure what that is all about. Better by 10 a.m. but still a bit of a worry. Meanwhile, when I went out to feed the animals this morning there were lots and lots of Red-winged Blackbirds in our trees. They were singing and chirping and hopping about the trees as if spring were really here in spite of the -12 C temperature and the fact that I have never seen the so early in March on our property before.

That is a wonderful sight. Just this morning when I was out scattering seed for our ground feeders, I heard the familiar sound of Red-winged Blackbirds too! I love their song.

The song always says "Spring," to me. Now for the American Woodcocks and the American Robins in song . . .
