Today it really felt like spring. I even saw a caterpillar - there'll be more snow, but we know it's finally going to end ... and winter will fade into distant memory.
This little male eastern bluebird (my most favoritest bird) symbolizes spring for me. They nest very early in the year, and should be hatching out the first clutch of the year about now. Later in the summer, fledglings from these early hatchings will help their parents raise the next batch of babies. I just think that is so sweet.
