Walking down the trail a few days ago, I saw and heard a bird I didn’t recognize. Sitting by itself on the branch of a tree, it was singing a happy song. I’m sure it was just as delighted with the warm weather and sunshine as I was. Here are a couple of pictures of the happy bird. It sounded like a phoebe, but I’m not sure that’s the right ID. If you know, please let me know in the comment section below.
Correction: Eliza Waters took the time to identify this happy songster as an Eastern Towhee. That qualifies it as one of our regular birds. ~Thanks, Eliza.
Unfortunately for both the happy songbird and me, the weather changed drastically last night, and the temperature has dropped some 30 degrees as clouds and, now rain, moved in! Sigh! 😖 However, despite the changeable weather patterns (that I blame on our location on the south shore of Lake Erie), spring is bound to come sooner or later. We’ll just have to wait a little longer.

To complete today’s post, below are a few more “regular birds” I enjoyed along the trail this week.
