Nature Notes: March flies away

Hard to believe that March is drawing to an end.
Today, I was relieved that it only rained during the day when the temperature was above freezing.
Tonight it will drop below freezing but we had partial clearing in the late afternoon.
The bird baths still freeze during some nights but it's been getting above freezing during the day.
The american robins are definitely in spring mode.
We've been having a lot of interesting skies.
I watched a pair of mourning doves walking around in opposite directions but then they would glance back.
It was as if they wanted to keep their distance but at the same time not stray too far from each other.
One of them was concentrating on the cracks in my driveway for some reason.
I always enjoy my redbud trees in the spring.
I keep thinking I'm repeating myself but I think the reason is I did a similar post on my other blog for our world Tuesday.
The brown thrashers have become busy.
I have taken so many American Robin shots it's been hard to decide which to use for this post.
I think the blossoms on the tree below almost look like snow.
I always see a lot of cardinals. They are the state bird of NC.

Wonderful early spring pictures and I wouldn't even care if you were repeating yourself. Blogs (or e-mails from Oregon) are the only place I get to see early spring anymore!

Cheers from Cottage Country!

The redbuds are always a sure sign of spring! I've never understood why they don't call them pinkbuds or even magenta buds....but they have always made me so happy, especially when close to dogwoods in the spring. Love your photos, as always Carver!
