More Signs of Spring

Every day when I go out walking I see more and more signs that spring is on its way. The robins are more and more numerous and the Steller’s Jays are coming around. I even saw my first hummingbird of the season. The photo of the hummingbird is terrible but I had to document that I actually saw it in February. I have never seen one before March or April before.

  1. First hummingbird in February . . . the sucker is going to freeze his little b . . . er . . . feet off.

    1. I also wonder about food . . . flowers and insects; I can’t imagine them being in abundance right now.

    2. I know. I worry about it too. I’m going to have to put my feeders out early for any of the early birds. I don’t know if this means that our 60 degree days are going to continue but for the next 15 day forecast, we’re in the 50’s and 60’s every day.

      1. Not sure if it’s like here, but our current 50s and 60s will give way to blizzards and periods of 20s and below. The possibility of snow for us runs through May despite days in March and April that reach into the upper 60s.

    3. We’ve been known to have heavy snowfalls into April but the last few years it has been rare. And if we do, it usually isn’t that cold and the snow is gone within 1-2 days.

  2. Was that the bluebird of happiness? 🙂

  3. Beautiful pics!The colors are so bright. You always take such exceptional photos of birds and flowers, as well as your other subjects.

  4. All three are wonderful captures!

I'd love to hear from you
