Is Spring early?

Saturday's Critters # 220 <= visit more critters here!
We shall see. Much of our snow is gone. Friday, March 2nd, we had a skiff of snow. Last night, 2 cm of snow.
Tuesday, on my way to my client's house, I spotted some gray lags!

Thursday, March 1st, I spotted a pair of red-winged blackbirds. By the time I fetched the camera they were gone.

I went for a walk in the forest a couple of days ago. It was cooler, where the snow hasn't quite melted.
Upon arriving home, up above the house: a pair of bald eagles. It was beautiful!

Raptors and birds are my favorite neighbors and they visit us often and raise their young in our we only live about a mile from the river as the eagle and the crow flies :)
You have a beautiful blog and wonderful photos Jenn!

Have a lovely weekend~

Hello Jen, great video and photo of the eagles. The Grey-lag geese are not seen around here much. Thankfully hubby got our generator working long enough for me to make a few comments. I will catch up on all links and blog comments asap. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

You may get an early spring but you also may get a terrible surprise if winter comes back.

Awesome video! Especially how they kept flying close to each other. And I couldn't stop grinning when Daisy was letting you know that your attention was mis-directed!!! Cats are so predictable!
