Seen on a Blustery Spring Day

With winds blowing at a quicker pace than the temperature was high, conditions today had a bite to them. Nature enthusiasts probably felt a nip in the air as they were out enjoying spring wildflowers (what few there are) and birds.  My wildflower “finds” for the day were snow trilliums and a few early blooming Dutchman’s Breeches.

Birds photographed today were a male northern cardinal and a great blue heron. I saw my first hermit thrushes today too, but have no photos to share.
