Spring is progressing on the farm. The migration of birds is perhaps the most visible sign of the change of seasons. Woodcocks, Great Blue Herons, Turkey Vultures, America Robins have been returning in greater numbers this past week. Tundra swans have been flying overhead on the trip to Canada. Redwing blackbirds are noisily singing and setting up territory.
While waiting for field work to begin, I put together a picture re-cap of the winter of 2016-2017 in the farm blog. Winter to spring: Take 2.
