Spring 29: Full

6:00am-6:45am, Arnold Arboretum, Jamaica Plain, MA
chilly, strong winds, clear except for small clouds on horizon

This must be the feeling of spring - cool, blustery winds, a clarity of sky with potential rain-clouds lurking on the horizon.

Feels not unlike yesterday's Dayton excursion, though I am delighted by the extent to which Boston has fully embraced spring (or the other way around!)

Lots of new trees have budded, the magnolias are in full bloom (I saw these last night), green grass grows confidently where scraggly straw and dead leaves once reigned. Spring is here, fully!

Today's bird is new to me, but I didn't manage to get a sighting:

Sounds like you may have had a Pine warbler. Did you hear this bird high in an evergreen?
