Maybe Spring is coming??

Ok, we are pretty much tired of all the cold and snow now. it was cool at first... but now we are ready for sunshine and temps above 30. heck, we'd even settle for mid 40's!!

We have noticed an increase in the wildlife we see out and about near our house. We sat in our living room last weekend and watched through our sliding window and saw all kinds of stuff. There were Squirrels, Deer, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Ravens, Chipmunks, and bears!!! OH MY!!! Ok, we didn't really see any bears, but we saw our neighbor's dog, Beethoven and he kinda looks like a bear. We hope that means that Spring is coming soon!!

Blue jay??

This is either a Crow, or a Raven. We aren't sure. Let's say it's a raven

Here's a video we took yesterday of some deer walking through the trees behind our house. There were about 4 in total, but by the time I got the camera, there was only 1 left to film.

Chris,that is really neat seeing all of the wildlife. Now only if you can see a ground hog and have him see his shadow spring will be near:)That was a neat utube showing the deer. Take care.

Hi Chris and Juli,
We really enjoyed seeing your video of the grounds around your house with the deer and pictures of all the wildlife! Yes, spring is on the way, and it will be very welcome this year! :o)

Ok, so I guess Spring didn't come yet. I feel for you. March is always the worst month for snow. One day it's warm and the next day you get dumped on by snow. We'll try to send some warm weather your way
