Signs of spring
Woke to the sounds of wild turkeys gobbling in the meadow the other day. On Tuesday my daughter saw a pileated woodpecker on the woodpile, and last weekend we spotted two indigo buntings (or maybe one indigo bunting two different times). We still hear orioles singing, so perhaps they'll stick around a little longer this year. We need to walk up the hill to see what's blooming up there, but the weather has been a bit iffy. Hummingbirds have been scarce so far, but the sun'll come out tomorrow and then you never know what spring will bring.
