Tardy Birds and Spring

Did you smell it in the air today?
Hear it?
See it?
Feel it?


Every year around this time, I hear a bird that sounds like it is saying, “come here, come here.” I have no idea what kind of bird it is nor have I ever seen it. Still, I’d go home and happily announce that the Come Here birds have arrived. I knew it meant spring was very, very close.

Tonight, I realized I have not heard my happy birds. All of the other signs are here though ... come on birds, you’re late!
