No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn...

Kein Winter dauert für immer
Kein Frühling überspringt seine Wiederkehr.


Our first migrating birds arrived on the shoreline of Lake Ontario and our Guildwood parks.I observed American Robins (Turdus migratorius)
Grackles (Quiscalus quiscula)and a large flock 
of over 25 Bohemian Waxwings(Bombycilla garrulus) 
feeding on small grab apples.
Flowering crocus and snowdrops are signs 
that spring is just around the corner.

Unsere ersten Zugvögel sind am Ontario See, sowie in unseren Guildwood Parks angekommen. Ich beobachtete American Robins, Purpur - Grackel 
(Quiscalus quiscula) and  eine große Anzahl von Seidenschwänzen (Bombycilla garrulus), die kleine Wildäpfeln fraßen.  
Blühende Krokus und Schneeglöckchen sind Zeichen, 
dass der Frühling, gerade um die Ecke ist.
