This red-shouldered hawk was perched on a neighbor’s roof the other morning. I looked out my window, saw the bird, grabbed my camera, and skedaddled out the door. Thank goodness I was already dressed and not lollygagging around the house in my robe. (It would be a shame to needlessly frighten the surrounding populace.) We routinely see a pair of hawks flying around our area. I happened to catch this handsome fellow doing a little morning feather-fluffing, lifting its leg during a vigorous shake.

Snowflakes are pelting down right now on the other side of my office window. Baby, it’s cold out there! In utter defiance, I’m dreaming of an early spring. The daffodils don’t lie, and we have several blooms that should make an appearance tomorrow in our flowerbeds! We spotted some blooming in our area on the 11th. That is the earliest I’ve ever seen them in East Tennessee.
I hope that signs of spring are coming alive in your area too!
