Birds signal spring

I thought for sure we were on our way to warmer weather. That’s what I get for thinking! All the signs of spring are happening, but the weather hasn’t caught up yet.
    The last few days, the diving ducks have been in the pond. It’s fun to watch them. You wonder if they’re ever coming back up, but of course they always do. They are a pretty duck, called messenger black with a beautiful pattern of white around the head and back. There was only one for several days. I thought it was probably the scout to find out if there was enough food to mess calling his buddies to come join him. Must have been good eating, because now there are more.
