Spring is coming. Even though we are scheduled for 3 to 12 inches of snow tomorrow the signs of spring are showing.
You can hear the geese flying overhead as they migrate north. On my way to join my sister-in-law for lunch today I saw hundreds of water birds resting on the Big Sioux River.
Late at night the coyotes are extremely vocal. They have a unique howl. If you were to hear it you would say, "That is a coyote."
Then on my way home I saw turkey vultures circling overhead. It is early in the year for them to be here but here they are. And there seems to be a larger number of them than we had last year.
My son even saw a moth when he let the dog out this evening.
So far the trees are not being fooled. No spring buds yet. That will be the final sign. Until then I will be content to watch the huge flocks of birds flying north.
