The return of migrant birds.
|Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) with nestlings|
|Western Ribbon Snake (Thamnophis proximus)|
The resumption of insect activity.
|Eastern Lubber Grasshopper (Romalea microptera) nymphs|
All classic signs of springtime in the South.
And then there's this...
|Only the essentials- a fishing license and bait|
Found on an Alabama creek bank on a Sunday afternoon in mid February.
A sure sign spring is drawing near.
