Spring is here - kind of!

YESTERDAY WAS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!
Winter is still holding on, but we just had a warm up:
a few days of average normal temps. 
We'll still have below-freezing temps BUT signs of Spring have started!

The geese have been flying, circling, landing near the river, then moving on,
The mourning doves that had a nest with baby birds last year... ARE BACK!! 

Here is a video of the baby birds last year:

NO FLOWERS OR BUDS YET THIS YEAR,
but looking forward to seeing the beauty growing all around us. 
HAPPY SPRINGTIME!!!
HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Sunset location & "warm" day

frigid #weather this #winter!
3-1-2014 was a "warm-up" (high temp low 30'sdF)

(also below at the end: link to live webcam of a bald eagle nest,
not local, but in Pennsylvania. They just got snow, too.)


The sunset's on it's way back towards the right, nestling in the dip in the mountain range during the Summer, where our  local main road, the CrossValley Expressway cuts through, going North.

These sunset photos were taken from approx 5:44pm to 5:55pm.

 I love the color palette here. Interesting clouds, too!

There's a plane!!!
 Good night!

I've been watching this nest off and on the last few days. 
Once I saw the "changing of the guard! When the parents switched places.
COOL!
Here's the link, so you can see it, too:
