A ruckus

One day this week while I was standing on the porch watching sleet come down, a flock of robins intermingled with cedar waxwings descended upon the bushes and trees beside our house.  They made quite a commotion for the brief time that they were about and then as suddenly as they had appeared, they were gone.  I’m hoping that this is a sign that spring isn’t too far away.
