Something good about this time of year

Spring is well upon us and summer is just around the corner *sighs* (although there is only twenty-five days to go until the longest day, after which the days start to get shorter *g*). However, in my 'try to find the silver lining in everything' way, there is something nice about this time of year.

Juvenile Starlings
Juvenile Starling


I can't say I am that fond of the look of adult starlings, but the juvenile ones are a very pretty brown. I saw our first one of the year on Sunday and yesterday a lot more came out to play. It's nice to watch them explore the bird bath, the bird tables and the nuts and see them learning how to fly and land, etc. And to see how they gradually become more confident. Oh, and they certainly make a lot of noise.
