Yesterday the fast running stream that runs NORTH from the gate towards what we used to call The Acre Pond ...this stream had budding crocuses and water lilies..Beside it was one quite furtive female Red Winged Blackbird. I have finally realized how truly furtive the female Red Winged Blackbird is. I have "heard" them these past few days. But I only saw this one.
AND HERE COME THE TINY CROCUS SHOOTS!!!!

I have never really seen a real, live woodcock. The truth is that, so far, I have had two "senior moments" in which I could not recall its name. I just remembered that they appear in Central Park, NYC when spring is soon to come. And I also remembered that they have a beep, beep sound like and insect. So here is a three minute video on another harbinger of spring....the woodcock.
