The signs are small, but growing. As I navigate the ice and snow that STILL cover much of the ground, birds are singing. I spotted a cardinal on my walk with Jake this morning, and a robin perched on the rail of my deck. The past three mornings, Jake and I have passed a mallard and his lady love, swimming in a creek swollen with melted snow.
The Toronto Star has invited readers to send in photos that show spring is truly on its way, and there is a great collection of birds, raccoons, migrating swans, squirrels and more here. Enjoy!
Sue, I’m awaiting the Canada geese that usually loiter on my lawn in spring.
They are all at my son’s school, fouling the football field. They should be along soon!
