Was he wrong?

I believe there has been some sort of a mistake.  ‘Phil’ just can’t be right.  You see this brown furry rodent has already given his highly scientific prediction as to when spring will arrive.  I am sure you all were as dismayed at the thought of having to endure another 6 grueling weeks of winter as I was.  But, we are here to reassure you that spring will be here before you know it… as a matter of fact we caught our first glimpse of it today!  Just take a look at what Mark spotted when he came home from work….

Hello spring....

Hello spring....

 

It looks as if he is sort of hiding and as you can see it has been a wet soggy day here, but it was made so much more enjoyable by seeing Mr. Robin Red Breast here!  Hopefully spring is not too far behind him.

We’ve seen some other neat birds around the feeder lately too…

Yesterday it was another foggy day that left everything nicely frosted.

I love their vivid colors, really is quite cheerful to see in the drabness of winter.

These are one of my favorites…I think these guys have a bird variety of ADHD!  They are just so busy all the time twittering here and there.

This guy was here just long enough to take this picture and then was gone again.
