Spring is just around the corner

The sun is getting higher in the sky these days and is shining brightly.  I'm start to see daffodils here and there.  I'm also seeing more bird activity as they scout out nesting territories.  I saw a pair of bluebirds in the sycamore tree this morning.  They will probably nest in the birdbox I have in the front yard.

Any tinges of spring in your neck of the woods?

    1. Yes, I do have one in the front yard which the birds have used for about 3 years or more.
      Also, my brother and his wife made one for me for Christmas. I haven't put it up yet. I need to get a pole. I originally had one on a cedar post in the back yard, but the post proved to be too easy for the snakes and neighbor's cat to climb.

  2. I wouldn't know a blue bird house, but on our walk we saw our first one yesterday along with a beautiful Cardinal. I hope they feel at home at your place.
    It is neat for me, I still have to ask Sherry is that a bird, it has been so long since I have heard them.

    And yesterday it was tree frogs, sounded like millions of them near the rail road track.

    1. The frogs you are hearing are probably spring peepers. It seems every ditch and small creek are full of them. They do remind me that spring is on its way.
