It’s snowing today, and it snowed yesterday, and I’m still routinely wearing my winter coat inside the house to save on the heating bill. (I’m cheap.)

Today, however, I saw two red-winged blackbirds. The return of these lovely birds means spring to me, regardless of the ice in the forecast for this afternoon.

It’s not the angle of the sun, or the lengthening days that brings this change in season. For me, it’s the sunshine on these birds’ wings.

    Any day now the sun will start to shine and we’ll forget about this cold dreary weather. Well, I keep telling myself this! Gorgeous photo.

    Looked up in a very old field list when this harbinger of spring arrives – in the Detroit area it shows the first week of March. Good to know some things don’t change!
