The Birds Are Back!

Definite sign that spring has arrived? The return of migratory birds. We’ve got woodpeckers in the trees, robins pecking at the ground, and two loons paddling around the lake out back. Also spotted this beauty and three of his friends:

The picture is a couple weeks out of date (the snow is gone now and the ferns are uncurling) and I am eagerly awaiting the appearance of ducklings. Also the building of the dock so we can actually get the canoe in the water and paddle out in search of baby loons!

What are some of your favourite signs of spring?
