Birds and Color in the Spring Swamp

March 15, 2012

Spring has new sounds ... and last year's color.

A spring sound I like best is the melody of the red-wing blackbird in a swamp. Perhaps the song is about territory, or mating.

Or maybe it's just a joyful, "Gee, it's great to be here again."

That's what I think.

A color I like best in spring is last year's gold in a swamp - last year's rushes, reeds and weeds, before last year's seeds turn to this year's greens.

"Gee, it's great to be here again."

That's what I think.
