Jeriann, don't get too far ahead. Remember we've had snow in April!
Barbara, I haven't seen females yet. It is fun to watch all the changes.
Daniel, ooh, I'd like to see Horned Larks regularly. Must be fields near you?

We have a lake in our front yard. Red-winged blackbirds, Horned Larks, Robins (new arrivals)and Killdeer.

Who knows who'll show-up tomorrow!


14 redwing black birds this morning say it's spring to me... one pair yesterday - very unusual to have a female so soon... but fun to see them.

A lovely time of year!

My backyard thought spring began on March 1st and I like that!! It gave me the fever and I've been cleaning and dewinterizing ever since :D

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
