I never know when it's coming... Could be early March. Could be late February. But when that day comes, I know it by the sound.
Even over the morning news on my iPod, I could hear the geese calling and honking, moving from the front of the V-formation to the back, as they migrated north. This is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner. Living on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, waterfowl are a common sight. From Great Blue Herons to snow geese, we see them all. A few years ago, we caught sight of a Kingfisher on the creek behind our salvage yard - in the middle of the city.
I am always bouyed by the sights and sounds of wildlife in the city. While it's usually the Medivac Helicopters landing at the nearby Shock Trauma Center, this morning it was the timeless sound of geese on their way north, following a path they've traced for years.
