It was 33 degrees and sunny when I went for my first morning of Spring walk. It felt great. I haven't been able to go out many mornings this month because of cold and slick roads.
Back when we had one of our winter springtimes this striped sparrow took up housekeeping with his mate in a neighbor's blue spruce. Here he is perched on my rhododendron during the heaviest of the recent snows. I noticed them diving into the bush. I guess they were finding something to eat. I put out feed a few times, but the fierce wind blew it away.
