I find this time of year the talk is all about weather , well at least it is here lol ! The birds and critters are reacting to the change in weather as are we . I find the weather can be so unpredictable this time of year as winter try's to keep it’s grip and spring try's to push it out . It is warm , cold, dry , rainy, snowy cloudy , sunny or all of the above in one day . We went from some snow on the ground and cold yesterday morning to very warm and torrential rains with high winds through out the day and now are back to green grass cooler temps cloud with sunny breaks and windy . The temps yesterday reached a record breaking for the day of +9 C or 48 F .
This is Miggs the ground and the birds before the rain storm .
And this is after as of this morning .
There are some birds there on the ground they just blend in lol ! Feeders were quiet this morning but look just a few patches of snow left now after all the rain .
The sun has been popping in and out , the ground is a bit frozen in spots and thawed in others and is a muddy mucky mess .
The weather is so up and down now but I like that the day light is getting longer , the sun rises earlier and sets later when it does appear . Miggs and I like being able to go for our walks when the land is like this and the roads are all dry and clear . I hear the birds and the nature around us are beginning to get restless now anticipating the arrival of spring soon as we are , especially as the weather has its warming trends and nicer days as the days get longer and sunnier .
I am keeping an ear and eye out now for our Robins and Song Sparrows . They arrived this time last year so hoping they do soon as they are a few of my signs of spring .
So is the weather the talk at your house this time of year and do you see the change in the sun, land and nature ?!
Until next time .
