This is so exciting! First, I heard birds two days ago. Then, Dick saw these sparrows yesterday!
But late this afternoon, Dick and Lindy went for a walk and saw starlings and Cedar Waxwings!
This must be a pair of Cedar Waxwings. I can see the yellow feathers at the end of the tail on one!
Don't they look wonderful against today's blue sky? No snow on the trees now, but do you think those might actually be buds? No, it's still January in Alberta.
I've never posted twice to the same meme on the same day, but when Dick gave me the memory card from his camera, I just knew I had to do this. There won't be another B day for six months! (And then, hopefully, it won't be winter in Alberta any more.)
The snow on the ground is starting to melt, too, but very gradually. Lindy comes in wet instead of snowy, though, so that's a good sign. I'll put up with Smell of Wet Dog if the snow goes away.
My second post today for ABC Wednesday's B day. Sigh. I hope I'll be forgiven.
