Signs of spring is on the way!

A couple of days ago I seen a couple of dozen robins
for the first time I remember in February and seen
my first couple of Sandhills and northern geese fly
over when I was on the ice.
It's getting closer....

Wow, I've never seen robins this early. I'll have to start looking more.

Here in Southern Michigan, I have seen Canada Geese almost every day, as there are many around here that don't migrate.
Also, there have been some robins at the Benton Harbor post office all winter. They will spend the winter in Southern Michigan if berries are available, like around the post office.

One sure sign of spring is watching the sun set around 6:15pm, an hour later than around Christmas .

The naturalist who does a column in our paper (Jon Wuepper in the Herald Palladium) said that Kildeer arrive around February 20th. I saw one on Friday, 2/18/11. Hang in there! Before you know it we'll all be on here discussing our morel finds.
