Yellow-rumped warblers, flickers, phoebes fly back
Robins are waking me up these days, but I'm not grumpy about it.
Unlike the sound of an alarm clock, robin song is pleasant to hear. I know it means I have to get up soon, but I can sleep through the singing, at least for a little while. Robins are sort of like a natural snooze button.
Even though snow is still mounded up around the house, out in the meadow there are plenty of bare patches of ground. I still have not heard any frogs, however.
