Oh, that's wonderful! Yay!! This is very encouraging :D

Our red-winged blackbirds are back, and Shemp the chipmunk even made an appearance. No robins yet, but I'm holding out hope :)

Oh, I love our Redwings! We have a pond next door thatisquite thebustling little ecosystem, and everyyear the blackbirds nest in the cattails. We were even fortunate enoughto see some of the nestlings this past summer.

And the male redwings are sooo funny: they perch on the highestcattails, or on the trees surrounding the pond, and loudly announcetheir dominion. They've even divebombed several curious cats, and ourneighbor as she tried to trim the grass around the pond :shock:. Oncein awhile, they'll get into "conversations" with us:

Blackbird: loud trill

Me: What?

Blackbird: louder trill

Me: Oh really?

Blackbird: chirp-chirrup

Me: You don't say...

Blackbird: twee-twee-triiiiiiiiiilllllllll

I love this threadMambo! :) For years I used to keep track of what date I sawthe first Robin each spring! This year it was weeks ago. We've alreadyhad daffodils up and Forsythia going for a couple weeks, the BradfordPears,Crabapples and Magnolias are blooming and the Redbudsare nearly there. My Hostas are up 3-4 inches already too. Usually allof this means it's time for us here in Kansas to have a freak KansasBlizzard or a Tornado! :X
