Howdy All,

I've been trying to work, but between ab idiot loader operator backing into my rig and the snow up here, it makes it hard to stay working.

Red Winged Black Bird are quite common up here all summer long. They have a very distinct call and are considered to be a song bird, so they're protected. They are more reliable when it comes to predicting the coming of summer. Some Robins have been know to winter over, instead of flying the coop south.

We had Red Winged Black birds in NY. I haven't seen them here though.
KOD, that is super, you have spring flowers poking up! I'm looking forward to Spring this year.

Whoops. I didn't mean I saw those red-winged black birds around here. I meant New England.

Pam, we'll have to move the leaves away and see if any flowers are coming up at my house.

Hik,
Sounds like a plan, if you do have flowers coming up, I'll be so envious.

I'm starting to see buds get bigger on the deciduous magnolias. The purple flowered ones have been known to come out in late February.

Anyone else noticed the seagulls overwintering on Ft. Loudon Lake?

You know come to think of it, I have seen a few of those flying rats pretty far inland here in Ohio since the winter storm have been holding on to us. Thanks for bringing that up, K of D
