Spring is Sprung

And in Maine that means half the state can still be getting snow as it was in the middle of last week, and then we go through a weekend with temperatures into the eighties. It also means we have chickadees in the lighthouse birdhouse Carrie put in the backyard, and the Totoros and ospreys are coming out. There's a nest on top of a powerline tower not too too far from our house that we thought was long abandoned. But we've seen a pair of osprey hanging around it lately. We hope to see some babies there soon.


  1. Cool! You get Totoros and ospreys! We get towhees.

  2. The Totoros get out of the house once in a while. It's hard to keep track of them all and sometimes they take advantage of that.
