The scene that greeted me outside my window upon waking this morning can only be described by one word:  twitterpated.    Has spring really come so early?  The skies and the birds seem to think so.

Birds flocking and flitting and flirting and flying about

The sky was gray but didn't stay that way.  The sun has come out to cheer hearts and minds this Monday.

These two were definitely in bird love.  Hop here, hop there, next to each other, away from each other, fly to this branch, follow her to that branch.

Just a Valentine's Day warmup.

The quintessential robin redbreast.

So puffy because yes, it is still very cold outside.

And this little guy.   The one and only picture I got of him, because he does not stay still for more than a nanosecond.  In your frame, out of it.  By the time you find where he moved to, he is off to a new location.

So yes, the twitterpation was quite the interruption to my morning, but not a completely unpleasant one.  After all, birds promise that spring and warm weather may be soon in coming.  Who wouldn't look forward to that?

@Mary . . . Thank you! I didn't realize how much I missed the birds until they showed up this morning. They were just such a normal part of life in San Diego and up here in the summer. Do you think God made them just to cheer us up?

Rachel.....He is so Good to us! Makes me think of James 1:17 "Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow."
Love to you all! Mary
