I was looking at my blog the other day and realized many of my photos in recent weeks were in shades of brown as I waited for spring.   Suddenly, the flowers are blooming, the trees and lawns are turning green and once again there is color everywhere – including the birds. 

This fellow greeted me as I came home yesterday.  He waited patiently for me to get my camera, then he posed a bit before he flew off on his way.
