I got your attention with that topic. I was walking late last night when I saw a couple of birds fly in front of me and I thought swallow. Wrong flight pattern, wrong wing shape, but it got me thinking about my blue bird boxes.
I have been busy this year on things other than bird watching. Plenty of birds at the feeders all winter long. Early last week a lone male red winged black bird made his appearance. If a bird singing means that it is happy then this male is one happy bird. Today the first grackle has appeared at my feeder. Though I have yet to see it one or more robins have been singing in the area. The Vernal Equinox is only 9 days away and the birds are letting me know it.
