Leaving Winter —-Wednesday, February 2, 2018

(I am posting some older photos today)

The geese are now living next to us in droves…um, rather huge flocks!  I just love it.

The Sandhill Cranes are also in massive flocks behind our house in last years cornfield.

I have been seeing small flocks of Bluebirds…wonderful little bits of sky announcing spring is almost here.  They will leave our area as the days and nights get warmer.

Then for the last few days I have been seeing flocks of Western Meadow Larks rushing about along the fence lines looking for left over seeds to eat.

What a joy this transission time is:  

The sounds of birds large and small, swift and colorful, gossiping and talking as they gather themselves for flights to the north, or come winging in from the south.

All the while taking one season with them, or bringing in another season as they arrive.

This is such a magical time, a herald of the marvel called Change.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. I never get tired of seeing the geese come through here. They rest on the freeway medians and all the cars will stop if they get on the roadway. Not as many this year as years before. Never the cranes though. You are lucky to have so much land for them to rest on. Yes, I know luck has nothing to do with it. Just really hard work. At least you have it so we can see the photos. 🙂 I think we are all ready for a little change.

    • March is always windy….caused by the mountains surrounding us…the wind melts the snow and wake us the plants, but it also causing nerves in people and animals…but, for me…I love it! 🙂
