A Sure Sign Of Spring!

My friend, Madalene, commented on yesterday's post that the only sign of spring that she has seen in our area is a little golden tinge to the goldfinches. "Not even a red-winged blackbird yet." Well Madalene, this photo is for you...have a look at who showed up under my bird feeder this afternoon! My grandpa always said that a red-winged blackbird was a better sign of spring than a robin, so spring must surely be here now!

What a beautiful sign!! Almost all of our snow is gone here in Maine and the daffodils are peeking up their little green heads - surely it must be coming!

It sure feels like spring here! Love your blackbird friend. Great picture!

Woo hoo! I'm ready, that's for sure.

I am so jealous, but spring is always a little later up here on this hill. I did, however, see more than thirty robins in our yard and around our barn today at lunch time, but I can't call it spring until I see that red-winged blackbird.

How wonderful. We don't get that bird here!

It must be exciting to see alll those signs of spring. We still have nice weather heading into autumn.
