In my neck of the woods, it is:
On our Sunday afternoon drive we saw the fields were covered with geese but didn't see any ducks.
As we drove by them, they would get up and fly a few feet then land.
I wish I had some whole ducks that were picked for me. Boiling a whole duck and using the broth for dressing makes the richest best dressing ever. I have learned one thing , men don't like to pick ducks. I have friends that give me duck breasts, but aren't interested in picking me any. (Oh well, it doesn't hurt to ask)
My yard is filled with robins. I love to watch them run about looking for worms and insects. They have enjoyed splashing and drinking from our little pool.
Is there some sort of calculation to figure when spring will arrive based on the robins? I'm glad they are here.......my yard has been void of any birds for weeks and weeks.
