Signs of Spring

My world was full of signs of spring today.


There’s no more iconical image of spring than a robin.


Well, unless it’s two robins.


The Canadian Geese are back enforce. Only in this case, they are accompanied by a lone snow goose who doesn’t seem to appreciate he’s a misfit.


A tiny wood duck joins along here – her return to the area another sign of spring.


And this view of the Machias River from Whitneyville from this morning? Not so much spring. Remember the robins!

  1. We had a couple of robins who stayed for the winter but now the rest have come back. Our snow has finally melted away and looks like warmer temps this weekend.
