Harbinger of Spring: A Personal Favorite

Robins, Red-winged Blackbirds, Spring Peepers, ducks on open water – everyone has a favorite indicator species or event that signals the arrival of Spring.

This adorable little critter just might be my favorite.


After hibernating for months in an elaborate underground burrow system, with an enormous cache of my bird seed for occasional snacks, Mr. Chipmunk appeared this afternoon – via a Red Squirrel snow tunnel – for the first time since late October, 2014.
