April SNOW Showers Bring ???

After a false spring the weather turned winter again last Wednesday and we've had new snow on the ground every morning since. Not to be outdone, on Easter Sunday it snowed all day, accumulating almost 2". The birds enjoyed lots of seed to help them through.

Recently we've had a large group of Tricolored Blackbirds come and feed on the ground below the feeder. Their song always reminds me of spring when I was young and I remember hearing them singing along the roadside as I walked to school. Having them in the yard is a reminder that spring is coming despite the recent setbacks in weather.
