I know Spring is here!!!

For me, Spring in Minnesota starts when I hear my first loons.

Today...I heard my first loon.  It is a beautiful sound in my book.

The common loon is Minnesota's state bird.

They are sometimes a mystical bird and their call is haunting at times.

But, still, it is a beautiful sound and I know spring is here.

Hello William Feela 

What a pretty photo.  I wouldn't know a loon call if I heard one...but I know some looney birds!

I'm not sure I've ever seen a Loon William.  I know spring is here because the pink dogwoods are blooming.

All I know about loons is... I'm as crazy as one. But, are they really crazy? I mean, how crazy is a loon anyway? Does that mean I'm not really crazy? Well, I think I just answered my own question, the last one that is. 


I knew spring was here when I heard the peepers!

Happy Spring!

Bill, thanks for sharing this sign  and sound of spring.  A welcome sight I'm sure.  I'm sharing it with my wife as well - she likes loons, too.

Good morning William.  Yes sir Spring is in full form here.  Just wonder weather, a good time to go play 18 and I think that is just what I'll do Sunday afternoon
