I just heard a downy woodpecker giving its descending multinote rattle call! First time I've heard that call since some time last summer
So even though it's still only in the teens F here (-10 C), the woodpeckers are Thinking Spring!
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
