Signs of Spring

Although winter has held us in its clutches for far too long, spring is starting to show itself. The land is thawing, the earth is awakening and the silent skies are once again filled with song. Here are a few photos of spring's subtle arrival on the ranch. 

Sharptail Grouse & Meadowlarks

Above image is of a sharp-tailed grouse with a meadowlark to the right. The male grouse will soon start dancing on the "dancing grounds"posturing and sparing with other males in hope of luring a mate. 

Meadowlarks
This meadowlark arrived a couple of weeks ago and can often be found on his new "Conservation Easement Boundary" perchsinging his beautiful song, claiming his territory. The meadowlark and the grouse are both ground-nesting birds. 

Bison Herd

Most of the buffalo have returned home from their winter grazing pasture on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands. They are as fat as bears, the mothers heavy with calves. Soon, very soon - new baby buffaloes!

Robins

Spring isn't spring without robins. Always the first to arrive. Welcome home.

Pink Clouds over Prairie

They sky has started to soften with its pastel colors, illuminating a hint of green on the prairie. 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a wonderful spring.

  • how instantaneous, it seems, when new spring life emerges every year and we find ourselves surprised by it each time. and thank you, Jill, for the wonderful pix, a small peep of what it must be like to live so near to heaven.
