Spring is here!
Not just because tonight is the vernal equinox.
Or because the 7 inches of snow that fell Monday have almost all melted.
Or because the sun will shine straight down the street that runs in front of my house -- if the clouds would only part at dawn.
But because this morning I first heard the robin's traditional spring call.
You know, the before-dawn one.
That sounds like the main sensor/viewscreen on Star Trek TOS.
That the robin will continue to make until about the end of July, which is when his nestlings will be out on their own.
