My thermometer is still registering over 50 at 9:30pm, though “They” are predicting back to the 20s in the next day or so… But there are several hints of spring at Audubon:
This is not Wobbly Goose. This is not New Goose. Today a third goose appeared in our backyard pond. He (she?) has a band around one leg. I suspect he’s (she’s?) here to claim the island for nesting. We’ll see… I guess I’ll call this one Breeding Goose.
Also, during our 9am Monday morning meeting we counted three male Red-Winged Blackbirds at the backyard feeders. Isn’t this a lovely photo by Hard-Rain?
