This wee snow storm blew in on the afternoon of the 12th April (the day of my last "ooh look how nice it's been" post),
and by the morning, there was 20cm of fresh, wet and extremely heavy snow dumped on Cochrane. Oh yay.
But it melted quickly - and the weather has cleared nicely.
Numerous birds are returning to our area now - the skies and riverbanks are awash with squawking, honking and beautiful chirriping, and the kestrels are hovering over the prairie grasses.
I don't really have a good enough camera (or the skills) to photograph the bird life,
but this little Red-winged Blackbird did pose nicely yesterday.
He had a quite lovely three-note birdsong and his red shoulder flashes puffed out clearly each time he sang.
Anyway, I've just come in to post this, because it is too hot outside!
26ºC today, thank you very much. Bring it on!
Damn, did that sounds too smug...again?
