Spring is on the Horizon (hopefully)

I am going to make a giant leap.  I believe that Spring is on the horizon.  Today I saw a Great Blue Heron, a pair of Wood ducks and a pair of Hooded Mergansers.  The ice is receding.  In fact our sidewalks are under 3 inches of water.  Right now it is 7:00pm and it's still light out.  It's amazing what a little change in Wisconsin weather can do for a persons mood.

Here is the Great Blue Heron standing in the snow.


The Heron is flying away.  Look carefully, it's hard to see.

If you look closely you can see the Mergansers
