Spring is here, even if March, as usual, is producing snowstorms. However, the snow has delayed the arrival of the first bluebird.
Or perhaps they have arrived and my network of reporters hasn’t informed me about it. If no one has seen a bluebird yet, it is most unusual. They often arrive in late February and usually are here in good numbers by the first week of March. These early birds are followed by the laggards, and by the end of March the main migration is finished and our nesting birds are here.
