It's Alive

The air, I mean. It's alive with birds at Catfish Corner! High above are migrating Tundra Swans and Canada geese. We have had some Trumpeter Swans overhead, too! Sandhill cranes are doing their odd cackle honk and are camped out somewhere down the slough.

Of the smaller variety, are lots of mallards, wood ducks, and a personal favorite, the Hooded Mergansers. They are performing their mating dances and skipping across the water like little bugs.

The blackbirds have returned, and we have had sightings of bluebirds and wrens. The robins have been here most of the winter but their songs are now about LOVE!
