The Sounds of Spring

What signals the arrival of Spring?  
Is it a date on the calendar?  The temperature outside?  
The flowers that we see popping up?
It may be all of these - but it is also the Sounds We Hear.
And yesterday I heard the Sounds of Spring with the
arrival of the Red-winged Blackbirds 

And so I pointed my camera through the glass window 
and captured this one in the tree.  He was FAR away but
I got a decent shot with my 500mm lens.  
Hurray for long lenses! 
We are supposed to be in the 50s today and tomorrow - so I am hoping to get out and about, although we still have snow on the ground.

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

I am linking to an AWESOME video of a 
Red-winged Blackbird
You will hear what I mean - a very distinctive call

Supposed to be warming up here too, at least above freezing anyway.
Nice photo of the red winged blackbird.

Those first few sounds of spring are so special. I sat and listened to a Horned Lark today and smiled all the time.
