April in New York

APRIL

"The roofs are shining from the rain,
The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.
Yet the back yards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree--
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me."


- Sara Teasdale

What colors in that bird! Truly exquisite...reminds me of the velvets of Victorian days. I know what Sara's thinking...this spring business can be so fickle. After days of warmth, we're back into the forties with a mention of snow in the forecast. Ugh.

This is a great picture. I love that sweet birdie. Our weather is back and forth down here also.

Pat, You have such an amazing eye for photography! I hope warmer days are ahead for all of us. It's chilly here, with more rainy days in the forecast. :-(

Lovely Pat! The weather here in NC shifts back and forth from warm to cold, but Spring is singing in me!

Pat, We had the rain but last night at 1 a.m. we also had the sirens! A tornado was spotted and the city sirens started at 1! Crazy!

I love New York! Yep, coming from the west - I think New York City is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. Loved your previous blog on the birds - amazing! Thank you.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

We just enjoyed a beautiful spring day...it felt like summer. But nothing is for sure in April...be it NYC or B.C.!

So what kind of bird is it?

What a great photo---I wish it were still spring here - yesterday it was 90 at the beach....sometimes we get these random summer days, and I think come back Spring!

Hi Judy
The bird is a starling. They are common around here.
