Spring Has Sprung

I noted a cardinal and an eastern meadowlark singing a few weeks ago before the big ice storm, but overall the birds have been fairly quiet. Not so this week. Yesterday I watched and listened to a mockingbird, and this morning the neighborhood is full of territorial songs. The spring competition for prime nesting sites and mates has definitely begun.

Good birding!
