Photographing was hard as the sun was bright and behind all the birds, but oh well. The good news was I got to wear a light jacket, the snow was melting, and the sun was out. It felt like spring was trying to get its foot in the door. Extra bonus was that people were actually barbecuing in the park- so it even smelt like spring! I very much look forward to warblers and WARMTH!

|The most unoriginal swans on Earth. Well I learned today that swans do this in real life and not just on computer wall paper or Valentine's day cards.|
|And then there is always "that guy." Way to ruin the moment, mallard.|
