    Climate change... Birds are often the first to react to any changes in the environment. Ants too, and sometimes rodents also, (if the situation is about to turn really bad) - They all know before anyone of us.

    They come up from South America after winter? Soon to Alabama then! Good news! DW is an avid birdwatcher and participates in the national bird survey!

    Never seen one like that. That little guy really is blue, isn’t it.
    Thanks so much for that pic, Mart.
