Spring Day in March.

It's the most beautiful day. Sunny and temperatures to go into the double digits. Himself is outside taking down the storm door. This definitely means that spring is here. Lots of bird song and birds back and forth to the feeders all day long.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I went by this climbing vine and saw that the leaves were starting to open.

And the Willow as well starting to show their furry coats.

The girls are also enjoying the wonderful spring, walking the paths to the feeders. Grabbing up the bits the other birds drop.

After almost a year without seeing them, the Nuthatches have come back.

And the ever present Blue Jays.

What a wonderful spring post; you must be so delighted to see all the buds beginning to show. What a mild winter you've had all told :D

And those Nuthatches - I think their necks are made of rubber!! Lovely pictures especially the first one.

I can't believe your weather has been so nice. Our overnight temperature was 18F. Nasty. I hope that was the worst of it.

Your chickens look so happy outside in the sun.

It's a beautiful morning here in Vancouver but it is not supposed to last as rain is in the forecast.

Still another week at the coast before heading home.

Our nuthatces stay all winter. Glad the girls are enjoying outdoor treats once again!

Winter is over!! Your nuthatch photo is awesome!! The girls look great too---do you get a good supply of eggs?

Dixie, we don't get a lot of eggs. We have only five chickens and some have stopped laying.

You're having a spring heatwave ;) Looking forward to seeing more of your feathered visitors*!*

There's signs of Spring everywhere here too, despite the miserable weather.

Happy Easter!
