A flock of red-winged blackbirds visited my feeder yesterday.  Is it a sign of spring already?  Well, at the very least, a sign of hope that spring will come.

An entire flock - just for Sophie and me. Seems rather selfish, but we quietly enjoyed it.  We just watched them in the trees above the feeder, on the ground, flying off and regathering, calling to each other, flashing their beautiful wings....and emptying the feeder as well.

It was a very special treat - for all of us.
