Spring Migration Has Begun

What a beautiful weekend we had, birds singing, flowers starting to bloom. Kind of makes you want to get outside and get a little dirt underneath your fingernails. I have a climbing rose to plant, right where it might hide my Direct TV satellite receiver. Those things can almost be an eyesore. They might even make a good wok to cook on, if you can get them clean enough.

This has been a very hard week for me and my brother and all of our children. My Mother passed away on the 10th of March. The funeral was not a sad situation, as many friends kept us in their thoughts and prayers.

There is always someone who thinks about predictions about the weather. Up in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, people have taken it upon themselves to turn to a large rodent to let them know when spring arrives.

It sure was nice to finally be able to get back into my regular routine of Saturday bird watching. After our Peking fix, Anthony Gray and I thought it would be a good idea to check out the old blown-out bridge on Cedar Creek at North Dickerson Chapel Road.

I am not sure of what went wrong, but I am having to write my bird story all over again. My new computer must have a mind all to itself. The weatherman was right on for this past weeks snow and ice storm.

What a rollercoaster ride with the weather this weekend. Saturday started out with decent temperatures, wearing only a lite jacket. After leaving our, Lebanon Senior Citizen Center Valentine Dance, I almost froze walking the short distance to our car.

Close Encounters of the Bird Kind

This past Saturday was bright and sunny, but the temperatures kind of stayed on the chilly side. It seems like every week that I give my opinion about the weather, good or bad. That does seem to have some kind of bearing on seeing birds.

I certainly hope that this past "Polar Vortex" will be the last that we hear of it until next year. Maybe they can come up with some completely new phrase to call a cold spell.

Looking Back to 2014

Well, it's refreshing to be starting a new year. I thought that I might think back to the year 2014 and some of the things that went on in my year. We had one of the coldest temperatures back in January where it dropped down to four degrees for about three days.
