It’s the coolest thing. All morning I’ve been seeing Spring birds outside my window. Little flocks of either sparrows or chickadees – yeah I’m so not a birder! – going back and forth picking things out of the grass that’s not covered by snow.
There have been brilliant flashes of red that I thought might be cardinals, but are more likely robins. Either way, it’s pretty.
We even saw a couple of birds of prey circling behind the office, there’s a field back there. They were too far for me to get a good shot, but they might have been falcons.
Everywhere I look, it’s birds. Birds that we generally don’t see until the weather turns warmer and the snow is gone. Yet here they are, with it looking like it does, temps barely in the 20s, with a Winter storm warning of up to 6 inches of snow on the way.
Maybe they know something The Weather Channel doesn’t?
I’m good with an early Spring! Hopefully those little birds are bringing a good message.
Yep, this is how IL does sunrise in Winter. Hope you like gray! Fortunately, I do, but not every day.
