|The birds wake me almost every morning, sometimes its nice, sometimes not so nice. I saw my first flock of Robins out on a lawn yesterday, not all that many, just a small flock of 50 or so. Soon there will be hundreds in the flocks on the lawns everywhere.|

I've noticed, too, that the birds are more active. And early in the morning I've heard them singing. Winter is just so blasted long .... sigh.
If you can, post a photo of the obelisk you made. Sounds interesting.

|I think it's a European legend that the birds find their mates on Valentine's day, but I know from keeping chickens that birds are very sensitive to day length. I always expect my hens to slow down the egg laying around Halloween and then start it back up around Candlemas. No robins here yet, Larry....but I expect to see a couple in a few weeks. (That and our real harbingers of spring: Turkey Vultures). Once you see the vultures hovering around, you know it's spring! San Juan Capistrano has swallows; Waynesboro has vultures. |
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
