Springing Forward

Little Robin Red-Breast - FeederWatch

Yesterday a Robin Redbreast flew by me. Since I was a youth it always excited me to see my first robin of the new year. It signified Spring is coming and almost here!

The snow seems to be melting off all the neighbor's yards except ours. AND we're possibly getting more snow on Monday BUT nothing stops Daylight Savings from happening or for Spring to break out. Finally, we will have broken through to the beginning of Spring. The official date of the Equinox is March 20th but we all consider DLS the beginning of Spring. (well, I do)

So, we will Spring forward on Sunday, March 12 and we won't look back. Don't forget or you'll be late for church on Sunday...lol. Also, make sure you test your Smoke/CO detectors

Note: 5 days later it will be St. Patrick's Day soon to be followed by Easter. It's a great time of year!

Doug, daylight savings time does make you feel spring is around the corner, no matter what the weather is doing.   Hope you don't get much snow.

Good Morning Joan Cox 

Potentially 2 storms are headed our way. One for Monday/Tuesday then another on its tail. They used the term Nor'easter which could mean a significant amount

Hello Doug - that's a nice photo capture you have in your post today.  It seems like we are experiencing an atmospheric river in SoCal as I write this comment.  Happy Saturday.

It was 80 degrees here yesterday and we do not have daylight savings time here, so I am happy!  I hope you get spring conditions soon!

Doug- when I was younger, I don't think I noticed birds l like I do know. We've seen robins out where we walk and it's always so exciting to see them.

Good Morning Kathy Streib 

This year I have a goal to attract Bluebirds to the yard. We get plenty of the scavenger birds like Blue Jays and crows

Doug- Bluebirds love mealworms so purchase dried mealworms and put them on a platform feeder. With so much development, it's been hard for them to find places to nest which is why we maintain and monitor boxes where we walk and in our own yard.  The Cornell Lab  is where we get a lot of our information.   They don't like their nest boxes to be around trees.

Hi Doug Dawes.  I have moved to AZ, but have not updated my information on AR  because I have not been licensed here yet.  I don't want to put the cart before the horse.
