It's March!



I'm excited that it's now March. That means less than 3 weeks until I head down to the Florida swamps in search of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker again. Be watching this blog, as I'm hoping to be able to post some images from the swamp during my time there. When I return in April, spring should be slipping its way into Michigan and that means the wildflowers will be shooting up all over the place. Following that, the trees will bud, the caterpillars will emerge, and bird migration will come in full force... my favorite time of year.

Winter still has a strong grip here, but the cardinals know what's just around the corner. They are singing quite a bit lately. We enjoyed a sunny day up here finally, after lots of snowy days this past month. So I hung out in the treestand this afternoon and relaxed in the warm sun with the screech owl.
