Thanks to the both of you....
I admit, I took notice of the lower swagging of the trees and moved into a better position before taking the shot.
Actually I almost slid into the ditch not watching my footing.

I think they are ahead of their normal time for here too. We did have a short warm up last week, that might have started them, then they kinda stopped when the temps dropped dramatically again.

I'm *assuming* you are referring to the bird in the first photo...are you? If so, it is a junco. He is much less puffed up than they have been...I noticed the other day that the juncos looked a lot smaller than I thought they were, then it occurred to me that the temperatures were much warmer, so he wasn't as puffed up against the cold as they usually are.

Beautiful bird photos, David! I love pussy willows!! My dad always brought some in the house to force open. We also did it with forsythia.

Thank you.

This is the first year I didn't get around to bringing any in. I am slowly removing all of the forsythia, but there is so much it may be another year or two.

I guess I could still force them both this year even if I did get a late start.

Yes, I was referring to the Junco. You're doing a great job decoding.

While walking my dog, Amber, I looked down and found this strange looking puff ball growing in pure white sand on an abandoned prairie.
