Spring Rush 2

A lot can change in a couple of weeks. The landscape is now teeming with life and tender growth. Heatwaves and sunshine. The pace of change is almost dizzying. It’s hard to keep up with everything. I have had a chance to check in on the purple martins, though, who have returned from their far-away winter grounds in Brazil. They are busy catching insects, bickering, and setting up house for this year’s breeding. Pictured here is a female martin in flight.
