Spring generally means that winter doldrums and gloominess are left behind. The birds are back and singing, the flowers are blooming, and the air is warm, which always means paradise in Central Texas!
The migrants are back! It’s been a late spring here in New York, but it’s finally arrived. April has banished winter for good, and the woods are beginning to fill with the sounds of returning songbirds.
March is a cooly pleasant month. The first birdsongs begin their melodious reverberations and the first tastefully hued flowers begin to emerge.
As usual here in Central Texas, we are already having summer-like weather. Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Northern Mockingbirds, and Bewick’s Wren are often heard scolding intruders.
