First sign of spring?

No, not a robin.

This morning out on the patio I saw a House Sparrow (a year round resident of the area that Charley Harper refers to as a "winged weed") with nesting material in its beak. No signs of avian copulation yet, but this one is obviously getting prepared.

Can the robins be far behind?


  1. Crocuses are coming up here. Mmm... spring.

  2. Day lilies are up near the foundation of the house too.
