Perfect Day Yesterday !


The sun was shinning and the sky was a brilliant blue  the winds were calm . All the birdies were busy fluttering around chirping and singing like crazy . The Goldfinch are  now singing their song again and so is the male Cardinal , the birdies are far more active now that spring is creeping up !

                                       So I went out in the yard for a few hours and took photos .

                                               Buds on my Lilac bush telling me spring is in the air !

                          The Goldfinch were flying form tree to tree just a chirping and singing  !

                                 Little Juncos every where scooping up the seed from the ground !


                                                            Mr Dove getting his  lunch !


Patches of snow melting here and there and the green of grass reminds me spring is near !

I had a great time out there yesterday just watching and listening to the birdies , playing with Miggs and soaking up some rays from the sunshine that is getting stronger  and now the sun is setting a bit later each and every day ! 

           It may not feel or seem like spring is close but nature tells a bit of a different story  each day ! You just have to look , listen and smell the air .

                                     Until next time hope you have a good day !

                                          Thanks For Popping By !

Oh my, what a welcome sight. Buds on the lilac bushes and on the trees. I am so ready for spring ;-)

Great photos, so nice to see signs of Spring already. I live in Winnipeg and I don't dare think spring thoughts yet... hopefully it will descend upon all of us very soon, though!
Hugs, Cindy

Lovely bird photos!!! I was looking at the pictures in your header and noticed that black squirrel. Is that typical for where you live??
