I really am just a sucker for spring.

The mockingbirds are back
Last night one of our local mockingbirds returned. It sang all night long. I don’t mind – it’s one of the things I like about the area. Did it know that it was February 1st? Or maybe it was welcoming the first full moon of spring (though February shouldn’t be spring, it’s already in the upper 70’s)? Wikipedia indicates that they aren’t much for migrating – and the climate here couldn’t be more mild. So I wonder if it was just keeping quiet, or if it went somewhere for a vacation…
In any case, I like having them back and singing.
