Numerous yellow finches have returned and are sharing their left overs with the pine siskins and the thrush. Soon we’ll be putting up another bird feeder which will draw different varieties. In our back yard a couple of red headed wood peckers have been finding morsels in the bark of a douglas fir tree, towering high above our meadows. Each morning a choir of song awakens us. Yes, spring is near done beckoning summer to make it’s grand entry…at last!
