Today was one of those days that I wished I had a zoom lens for our good camera. I spotted a flutter of activity near the garden this morning right after breakfast... Four bluebirds!
Though I strongly suspect their appearance was correlated with the impending storm (it is sleet-snowing outside as I sit cozily and dozily inside typing this), I am not sure what the connection is, or why they were so interested in that particular box. Bluebirds do fledge in it every spring, but that could just be coincidence.
Shortly after that, the first snow geese of the season, that I have heard anyway, came honking by overhead. Everybody was aflutter over the approaching storm.
