For us, the first half of May has been significantly colder than the historical norm, which has slowed down springs’ arrival. Then we had a month’s worth of rain in five days. As of Tuesday spring finally seems to be here to stay, which means that our redbud tree is bursting with colour!


Good to see.

It was good to see this Red-breasted Grosbeak at the feeder. I first heard its song on May 08, or just a week ago. Is it the same one as I saw last year? While it is impossible to say, I like to think that the one I saw last year survived fall and spring migration, and wintering where it did.
