Here’s what spring has looked like so far in my neck of the woods: spring azure butterflies fluttering, blue-spotted salamanders creeping, mourning cloaks emerging from hiding (they overwinter as adults!), and turkeys showing off. I love how this season looks different everywhere. What does spring look like where you are?
Today I went for a hike and got to hand-feed some wild birds — black-capped chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches and red-breasted nuthatches. There’s nothing like the tiny weight of a bird in your hand, or hearing their very strongly-voiced opinions about the quality of seeds or the manners of the other birds.
