No Matter How Long The Winter, Spring Is Sure To Follow!

F/10.0, 1/400, ISO 160.

Black-capped Chickadee

What did the tree say to spring?

What a re-leaf.

Interesting Fact: Chickadee calls are complex and language-like, communicating information on identity and recognition of other flocks as well as predator alarms and contact calls. The more dee notes in a chickadee-dee-dee call, the higher the threat level. ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Black-capped_Chickadee/lifehistory )

First Day Of Spring

snow

F/5.0, 1/125, ISO 900.

Day 79 / 365

It is the first day of spring and winter is not giving up. I would say it is kicking spring butt.

Interesting Fact: On the first day of Spring the sunrise and sunset are about 12 hoursĀ apart, everywhere on the Earth and the hours of daylight and night are almost equal. Daylight is a little longer. ( http://www.kidsplayandcreate.com/what-happens-in-spring-when-is-spring-spring-facts-for-kids/ )
