How often does Easter collide with April Fool?
Grr. I seem to have misplaced two whole novels still in manuscript form. Not deleted, but I have too many computers and disk drives. Need to get better organized I see. 😬

Crocuses (croci?) Make an appearance right on time.
Early voting yay! Primary ballot cast. 🐎

Seventeen redpolls at once, picking up nyger seed from the ground. Of course thew flew when I reached for the camera.
Things are getting interesting now. GOP/NRA have finally stepped on the wrong toes. Students stand up and act, schools attempt to back and enforce the status quo. That won't work. These kids will be voting in 2 yrs or less. Goodbye, GOP!
Submitting bird lists from Great Backyard Bird Count (2/16 to 2/19) and I get "challenged" for pine siskin and common redpoll as "Not found in your area." I beg to differ. The siskins are regulars. Redpolls appear in winters but not every year. Both were positive ID at close range. (5 feet!)
Greatest amount of snow accumulation here in several years. 20 years ago this was common. Now it feels extreme as we scramble for dusty forgotten means to deal with it. Between 12 and 14 inches standin, with deeper drifts. https://mastodon.social/media/JHS72BVUIz56eKoU9yo https://mastodon.social/media/UhkmeGZboxUaP96GCKU
More snow. Put horses in, had to scrape snow off them. Only the second time this season. 🐎
