My last Nature Notes was about ice dams, of which we had p.l.e.n.t.y.
Today: the herald of spring. I've never been so pleased to see a crocus in my life! The weather has been warming, but today was especially delightful in the high 70s, birds going crazy chirping and calling. I imagine the ones in my backyard right now chewing me out for not refilling the feeders. They're ravenous, these little birds!!
