In a Deadened Shell of Ice and Cold—Sunday, February 10, 2019

We are gradually melting, getting warmer, then suddenly the low grey clouds will arrive once more complete with a nasty chill wind

And winter returns…often times abruptly.

Even so, I can still entertain myself very well at the bird feeders

But yesterday….the signal that the New Year had arrived (I count my year as Spring, Summer, Autumn…with Winter as last…just so you understand πŸ™‚Β  )

The Red-Winged Blackbirds arrived!

Adding their joyous voices to the melodies of the Sandhill Cranes and the tunes of the Canada Geese!

No matter what…cold/sleet/snow/wind/ once the Red-Winged BlackBirds come they bring with them the song of Spring!

From my world to your heart,

  1. Your yard and fields should be full of song! Are the RedWinged Blackbirds early, late or right on time?
    Beautiful photos!
    Ps. Did you guys see the meteor that streaked across the sky the other night?


  2. Well, thank goodness Linda. Just to know the red winged blackbirds have arrived by you makes Spring seem a little bit closer for all of us! Goodness knows this is a very bitterly cold winter and we are getting tons of snow! Which makes all those who love to play in it, very happy! thanks for the good news today! Enjoy your many bird friends!
