Harbingers of spring...

Two blackbirds were perched on their feeder this afternoon. The feeder outside our kitchen window that hundreds of blackbirds frequent in the summer months. It was full of snow today but as soon as we spotted them David went out, cleaned the snow from the feeder and replaced it with their favourite seeds. They'll be back. We sometimes call our blackbirds 'backbirds' as one of their favourite hang outs is on the backs of our sheep. So, spring is officially springing... the blackbirds have returned.
