Yesterday was gorgeous, a few clouds to break up a solid blue sky, temps that were warm enough to not need a jacket, beautiful light and no lake stink blowing onto the island. It felt like spring, it smelled like spring and it even sounded like spring with all the birds adding to a merry chorus. It was delightful!

Even this Chukar seemed to be shrugging off the winter doldrums. Or maybe it was airing out its arm (wing) pits.
