A sign of the coming spring is the red-winged blackbird appearing. I usually start seeing them about the last week in February. This is the first one I've seen this year. Heard him as I was passing by and spotted him high in this silver maple tree. His silver maple tree was just about ready to start flowering.
McCormick Road just south of Cherry Lane, Feb. 26, 2012.
