Robin

Well, it's been a few years or maybe a few decades since I was jazzed about seeing a robin, but this morning the first red breast was sucking up worms from my front lawn and I was jazzed!

The geese have been here for a week, the ducks were frolicking on Stoney Run yesterday, and a pheasant flushed herself from a nest near the fir tree in the afternoon. Bird life is harbinger to spring here in our prairie world. I'm happy to say we are watching carefully and enjoying the shenanigans of our feathered friends including the roadrunner who sped across the dirt farm road we took home from the fitness center in the late afternoon.

The honking geese compete with the train whistle as it zooms through town; the mating geese being a better way to awaken in the morning.
