Signs of Spring

We are well into the Spring season here -- rice has been planted and the preacher is praying for rain!

In our woods, the blackberries are starting to bloom

and in the fields we're seeing Scissor tailed flycatchers ... and not much else!

On the roads, however, we see all the animals who have gotten out along with the cars and trucks and met with a bad end. Yesterday, there was a large dead bird on the road -- it looked like an owl. My guess is a barred owl -- it was basically brown, and I didn't notice any "ears" -- though it's hard to tell when you're driving by.
