April 3/Nature Notes

A lovely start to spring

The local osprey are back and this one is working on its nest.  Moving clockwise, maples are getting ready to flower, bossy geese are defending their territories, trout lily leaves are up, moss on a log brightens its surroundings in the sunshine, and coltsfoot blossoms bloom in large colonies.  We received a dusting of snow Saturday night but in spite of that spring is in the air.

My MiL has a pair of birds nesting in her garden. It's been fun to see them hunting for the right materials to get it just right. By the looks of your shots, spring will be in full swing by the time I'm back! :)

Coltsfoot looks like dandelion. I love seeing the little buds at this time of year, like your maples.

we love to watch the osprey adding to the nest, the nest has been there for years, but each year it gets bigger as they spruce it up for those loud babies.
