For me, the return of red-winged blackbirds to our meadow is a sure sign of spring. After a long winter, their spirited song and the flash of their red-and-gold shoulders provide welcomed assurance that the greening of the Central New York landscape will come soon.

But even the blackbirds are too optimistic about winter's departure, often finding themselves perched on old weed stalks, enduring what we hope is the season's final snow.

A blackbird sways on
a goldenrod stalk covered
with afternoon snow
