snow geese redux

Last year at this time, the snow geese arrived by the hundreds. I haven’t seen (or heard) them yet this year, but yesterday, red-winged blackbirds and the funny silly grackles showed up at the feeder.

Spring inches her way towards us in a one step forward, two steps backwards kind of way, and the light fills my house and my heart.

I’ll be listening, each time I step outside, for the geese to arrive, a final cue for the changing of the guard.

Seasons shifting on the axis of birdsong.

Music to my ears.

    Beautiful! Is this a photo or a painting?

    It never ceases to amaze me how the birds know just when to show up.

    Well, it’s beautiful and I was wondering if you would give me permission to use it as the basis for a watercolor painting?
