As I drove down the driveway to the parking lot, I had the pleasant surprise of having two white-tailed deer leap across the road right in front of me! They took off into the woods near the JCC. That's always a nice way to start the day.
Little green leaves are starting to show on many shrubs and vines. There are robins everywhere, the song sparrows are singing their hearts out and there were several juncos. They really seem to like the meadow right now. It won't be long before they start their journey northward.
The pond revealed our friends the mallard couple and the red winged blackbird who've been hanging out there for the last few weeks.

As I was returning to the parking lot, I saw that the tree swallows were now investigating the same boxes the bluebirds had been looking at last weekend. One of them was very intently claiming one of the boxes as their own. No sign of the bluebirds today.
