A Song Sparrow brings spring closer!

YES!, Spring is almost here! I can tell it by the bird's presences. This morning a Song Sparrow in Bird Alley!! and a Tree Sparrow is still here. Yesterday we had Grackles and Red-winged Blackbirds drop by. Yesterday I took pictures of Common Goldeneyes in the Saint John River. and we saw a flock of Canada Geese flying through the sky And watched them land in a field adjacent to the highway. How lovely it all is!. I am no longer anticipating snow. Tomorrow is the first day of spring!!! I am thankful that winter is gone, but we still have a bit of snow in our back yard! , bu tha'ts okay as it is disappearing fast.And our garden statue has changed her outfit, that's a sure sign of optimism. Have a great day!!!
