One Swallow Does Too Make a Summer!

I was sitting on my porch this after noon when I heard the chittering of a barn swallow. He was solo, but that was enough for me, and maybe tomorrow the entire flock will come back to their nests in the parking sheds.

No bobcats seen today at the park. It was so warm I expected to see the black racers along the rock walls, but I think Nashville's winter weary hordes kept them underground. There was mass dog walking going on as well and bicycles everywhere.

I heard no warblers or gnatcatchers, but they cannot be far away.

I always liked when they came in along the river home

Woodcock, Red-Winged Blackbirds, and Robins have started to show up, and today a desultory looking Bluebird watched the snow pile up on his house.
