Sounds of Spring

This morning I woke up early. I laid there for a minute with my eyes closed,and I heard it.


Not just the blue jays that have been enjoying the cat food we leave out for Molly The Bruce.Other birds! Spring birds!!!

It was so nice to hear something besides the squawking blue jays and crows. Such a nice,lovely melody. I am not proficient at bird song,so I couldn't tell you what kind of birds they were,but I do know what they weren't.

In the past few days I have seen robins,white breasted nuthatches,chickadees,pileated woodpeckers,tufted titmouse,and juncos. Rick says he saw a cardinal.

I love the sound of birds singing this time of year.It conjures up images of  warm days,light breezes,the smell of lavender,and green grass. It brings me to days when I can go outside,sit in silence,and rejuvenate my soul with nature.

Spring is here. I can hear it!


  1. Sad to say,we still have quite a bit of snow :( But we keep losing some each day,bit by bit. I suspect we will get at least another snowstorm at some point. Springtime in New's typical!!!
