Spring is coming . . .

. . . or maybe its here! We took a short walk this afternoon at Lochness Park and saw a few firsts for the year. Although I had seen a single Red-winged Blackbird earlier this season, there were many more calling out today. We also saw a Great Blue Heron (first of the year), Fox Sparrow (first of the year), and an Eastern Bluebird(also a first for the year). So far a short walk after work, I would say it was a pretty good day! I'm hoping to get out again tomorrow morning if the weather holds. It's supposed to rain starting tomorrow afternoon into Sunday.
