A flock of migrating Canada Geese pauses for a break on the Potomac River
The migrants find open water on the rivers and streams but most of our lakes and ponds are still covered in ice. I have noticed many migrant birds the last few days. Grackles, cowbirds, and robins are now here in significant numbers. Last night the spring peepers were singing loudly, but today we have received about six inches of snow and it is still snowing.
