|Spring is in the air|

For those of who out there who are yearning for signs of spring...have no fear, the stillness of the winter forest has been broken. This morning on my walk to the office, the sounds of the Cardinal, and the Red-Winged Blackbird filled the morning air. In the distance, the distinctive hammering of the Pileated Woodpecker echoed in the background. Our small scale maple syrup production is well underway and the buds of the Choke Cherries are ready to leaf out. It seems early for all of this, but as we haven't had a real winter in Southern Ontario, all the forest dwellers including myself are itching for spring to arrive.
