Outdoors -- IT HAS BEGUN!

The great invasion has begun.
The starlings and robins are mobbing up, getting ready to establish their territories, choose nesting sites, and advertise for mates!
There are dozens of robins in the trees and dozens of starlings with the bright yellow bills that mean spring is coming all over my lawn. 
The starlings must think I have Japanese beetle grubs under my yellow grass, but it's just a warm-weather grass that always goes yellow in the winter.
OTOH, the mass of brown grass means that three years of cornmeal gluten has pretty much rubbed out the crabgrass.
At any rate it's a noisy crew taking advantage of the sun and ignoring the shreds of last night's snow.
