Every time I decide I’m just going to abandon this blog, something draws me back. Then, every time I decide I’m going to start blogging here regularly again, something draws me away. Oh well – I’m going to quit trying to explain, because I just don’t know what else to say.
I DO know that this has been one long, cold, snowy winter here, and I am so ready for spring I can hardly stand it. The daffodils have been blooming in Kentucky for more than a week, and the redbuds will soon turn the hills pink – but I’m going to miss both, since I won’t be going back there until after spring banding is completed here in NJ.
There’s hope though – I heard a phoebe singing yesterday – and the titmice and chickadees are changing from a few chirps here and there to bits of actual song.
I think I’m going to be a lot like some of these hibernating animals – coming more fully awake as the weather warms up and the sun shines again! Life is chilly – but good.
