Sure Sign That It Is Spring

Spring has definitely sprung.

I woke up to a decapitated bird's head on my welcome mat this morning.
(I'll spare you a picture of that!)

When we went to Ogallala on Monday,
we discovered that the cranes had already begun migrating.

We sat and enjoyed them for quite a while
as they hadn't reached the valley yet.

We had seen the pelicans on the little lake on our way out of town.
That is always a sure sign that spring is here.

On Tuesday morning, a small flock of cranes flew over.
I love the sound that they make.

Yesterday, I found them in the corn field east of our place.
Who needs to go to Central Nebraska?

They come to us!

But for those of you who can't enjoy them in person,
check out the Crane Cam.
