I sure do like to hear them sing. Reminds me of fishing along the riverbank when I was a kid.

Went to Wheaton yesterday and seen about 200,000 snows, blues and canadians between there and Herman, and there was also a ton of ducks buzzing around there.  Found some water running through the ditches and culverts too. It's pretty wet out there.

Nope. None here yet. No robins either, although I can hear them. Rain should make them appear on the lawn today. Lotsa woodpeckers though, and two Cooper's hawks that are eating my songbirds up.... :angry:

Those damned things ate right thru the soffit AND roof shingles of my neighbors shed, TWICE, and destroyed all the xmas decorations and lights stored in it. He borrowed my trap and caught both of 'em.  They went to nut heaven via Reb's skwirrel dunk.  :evil:
