We have been diligently watching out our window for the first signs of Spring, and can report that the ice on the river has finally broken up. Fewer icebergs have been sighted floating East, AND the Mergansers are making their annual migration stopover.
|The Boys are all hoping to "get lucky"|
These folks are heading North to their summer breeding grounds, and boy are they excited. Except for the poor female in the middle of all those males!!!!!!
And although some people are proposing that winter is over just because today is March 21, and are proclaiming that we should be celebrating Alban Eiler, the view from our window indicates that this is a preposterous idea.........

Maybe celebrating with skiing or Alpine Yodeling would be better than dancing nekid under the full moon for this years celebration.
On a more serious note (probably a b flat), Beatrice and I hope you all have a wonderful
"First Day Of SPRING"!!!!!
