Last day of winter

 Hard to believe, but tomorrow it is spring, so thought I should do a wrap up of this, the last day of winter.

We have been fortunate to have had some pretty nice weather this month.  Here we are on a pretty typical morning over at the log bay.  Some Mallard and Green Wing Teal paddling about...

and this Great Blue Heron is usually poking about too.

large numbers of Red-wing Blackbirds continue to be there as well.

over at Harrison Bay, things continue to slowly move into spring.  Pairs of Mallard are showing up in the quiet sheltered areas, most of the geese are paired up and today there wasn't a single swan to be seen.

Crows, like this guy, and Starling are both gathering nesting materials, in fact I think some Starling are already nesting.  We've also see Steller's Jay with nesting material.

Tree Swallows are around, but not too many yet, and we are awaiting the first Rufous Hummingbird....some have been reported in the lower mainland, so it should be soon.

still waiting to see the first dandelion flower, but the first Salmon Berry flower appeared the other day.

Now, bring on spring!
