Let’s see now – the white breasted nuthatches, who are migrators, have returned. The chipmunks never really went to sleep for more than a week. It has rained 5 out of the last 7 days. The birds are chirping all day long, and starting very early in the morning.
Not only has the possum returned to his habit of showing up the minute the squirrels and cardinals pack it in for the day, but the raccoon, who has been missing for a couple of months, showed back up this evening – right after the possum finished his meal. The grackles are back, though the cowbirds have not yet shown up.
The bucks still have their antlers, but are voracious, as are the does.
Yep, the signs are all there! It must be spring! : >
