What are the present intimations of spring?
This snow-flecked Red Squirrel should be entering its summer moult about now.
The arrival of Dark-eyed Juncos indicates spring is imminent…,
as does the arrival of a Belted Kingfisher (with fish), which will be here through into fall.
However, robins have arrived for spring only to find it snowing on their crab apples.
The sighting of a Downy Woodpecker merely tells us that it isn’t yet summer.
