Three swans still on the lake by the reformatory farm near Monroe; saw them
on my way in to work this morning around 7:30'ish.

Also, yesterday I heard (briefly) the first band-tailed pigeon of the season
in the alder trees next to my house, no doubt scoping out my feeding
stations to make sure they're still there. I'm sure his/her friends will be
along very soon. In the past two years I've lived at this property, I've
seen up to three dozen at a time chowing down at my feeding stations. It's
amazing to see how many of these large birds can fit on one feeder at a
time, like watching acrobats in a circus. Quite entertaining to view as
they jockey for position. Good thing they don't stay long; they are eating
machines.

Spring is coming, isn't it?
