One Sign of Spring

It's a beautiful day here in northern Colorado and spring is definitely here; hopefully winter got the memo and will stay away until next year! One of the things I love most about living here is how often we see Pelicans, Bald Eagles and a variety of other wildlife. In northern California, the most we would see was wild Turkeys and Rattlesnakes. I have noticed more and more Pelicans arriving, as they do each spring to spend the spring, summer and part of fall with us. There is a wild grass area next to the golf course and they are going to be putting in a lake where the grasses are. I'm wondering if that will mean we will see more geese and of course pelicans.
I'm going to take Hunter out on a nice long walk and plan to ride this afternoon, before I start quilting. I just love it when the weather cooperates and I can sit outside and read-so that may happen before I begin quilting. In the evenings we watch t.v.-especially the Voice and I sit stitching. This years talent has been incredible!
 I hope you have a fantastic day and can get outside and enjoy some weather-hopefully sunny and not rain! I would send all our rain and snow, that is forecast for this week, to California. Please, you can have it. I am glad we are at about 95% of our water totals, but so many are in need in the entire state of Ca.


  1. I had no idea that you would see Pelicans in Colorado! Yes the talent on The Voice is amazing this year. I don't know who to pick as my favorite.

  2. Oh those birds are beautiful!

  5. WoW, these photos are beautiful, as you know I love nature, what a treat to have pelicans nearby! Our Canadian geese are back, and the lady is sitting on her nest, hopefully she will hatch soon.
    Enjoy your Spring weather, our weather has turned cool, for this week, but for sure it will soon change! ~smile~

  6. Oh gosh,, we do not have any of those Pellicans,, but they sure are beautiful! What big wings!
    We have lots of robins, and swallows and ravens and mourning doves,, and lots more birds too.
    love tweedles

  7. Sounds like you had a good day ! Lovely photos I like Pelicans . The weather has been up and down today here windy chilly sunny rainy . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  8. Enjoy those early signs of spring! We don't have pelicans here...nice photos of them.

    Hope you get to go to Charleston again soon ~it is beautiful there.

    Take care,

  9. Seriously...pelicans in CO? Surprising! Love 'The Voice' and agree as to the talent this season. It's always good to have something to stitch on in the evenings.

  10. Great photos of the pelicans, Noreen! I have seen them flying overhead here too, but I think they are just passing through.

  11. We were happy to see the rainy days pass by and today was just glorious. We even got to have two walks with Mom. Lots of sunshine and beautiful temps.

    We hope you see lots of pelicans, none here, just those noisy geese:(

  12. I'm pulling for India on the Voice.

    So glad that Spring has arrived for y'all. We waited a long time but it finally arrived about 3 weeks ago.

  13. My birding buddy saw a flock of pelicans, but I haven't seen any yet. It won't be long ! :)
