Signs of Spring

Spring was really on the way today. This morning I was awakened by the sound of tundra swans migrating over the neighborhood and when I was leaving the bird store tonight I noticed a bird sitting on top of one of our bluebird boxes. I help up my binos and what did I see:

A tree swallow staking his claim.

We also had a male goldfinch who looked like he was almost completely done with his breeding molt. Woo Hoo!
