Return of the Birds

Well, the weather’s been fabulous (if a bit chilly) the past few days. I think we’ve seen the last of the snow. I could be proven wrong, but I doubt it. It’s very pleasant here in the spring — in the Bay Area, the only birds you see much of are pigeons and seagulls, so it’s great to have the return of the aviary here. They make a lot of noise in the morning, battling over turf and building nests and engaging in all of those other bird activities. It’s nice.
