Burlington birds

Hi - I was disconcerted on Sat. a.m. to hear and see a big flock of Canada
geese flying low overhead heading NORTH.  I do know there are flocks that
may hang around year round but this sure sounded like spring, TOO EARLY I
fear.

Also put out some sliced almonds that had gotten worms in them (ugh) and
right away a Carolina wren was out there eating them before the squirrels
found them.
