Spring Is Coming

We've been enjoying some beautiful days in the 50's this week and look who I spotted basking in the warm sun.

I first heard this Meadowlark as I was cleaning the house. It was such nice day I had the windows open and he started singing to me! I was so surprised I jumped up, grabbed the camera and started looking for where the chirping was coming from.

Here is the Robbin that I spotted from the living room window. It was another grab the camera real fast moment. I know you think I'm silly, but the return of these birds means that spring is on its way to the northern prairies. Plus, its so nice to hear their melodies after all the cold and dark days of winter.
