Sparrows in the rain


A posse of Tree Sparrows spent some time cracking millet seeds yesterday in the rain.

It rained much of the day. Then a line of thunderstorms passed through in the middle of the night, with rolling thunder that boomed so loud it shook the house. Torrential rain washed away most of the snow, the streams are overflowing, and it’s 55 degrees… making us think it is mud-season spring already.
