Winter Moon to Spring Birds

The skies were clear until the rise of the "super moon," a perigee moon that was 20 percent larger than normal. Lots of sky drama. However, by the time the clouds parted, the moon was high in the sky.

These were photographed between 10:30 and 11 p.m.

The first day of spring is also my son's birthday. The day he was born in Arizona, it was 95 degrees. So, I always appreciate spring here.

Daffodils and hyacinths are starting to bloom and the flowering plum has been a busy place with many different birds.

A flock of red-winged blackbirds frequented the birdie spa all morning.

Lots of juncos, purple and house finches, a couple of robins, and a lightning-quick chickadee that I am still trying to photograph. I think they are faster than the hummingbirds.
