In typical April fashion, the backyard bird chorus today was quite impressive, even at 5 o’clock in the afternoon. Among the voices were flickers, robins, mourning doves, grackles, goldfinches, siskins, house finches, and juncos. Our coltsfoot and hepatica have been in bloom now for a few days. The flowers on the Red Elderberry are almost open.
