Signs of spring? Not so fast

Melissa Kleyn took this photo of a robin and a cardinal in the front yard at the Post, on Tuesday, April 3, just hours before we were hit with an overnight snowstorm.

The signs are there that spring is right around the corner. The extended forecast shows temperatures reaching the 50s by the end of next week. We will believe it when we see it!

That’s for the birds

Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us this cute wildlife photo. She said she put out some leftover popcorn for the birds, and it appears that the rabbit is patiently waiting and wondering if the cardinal is going to give him any! Thank you for a great photo, Mary Lou!

If you have a wildlife photo you’d like to send to the Post, email it to news@cedarspringspost.com. Include some info about the photo, your name, what city/township you live in, and how to contact you.

This bright red cardinal has been hanging around in the trees outside of the Post newspaper offices. This splash of color brightened up the day last week Friday, when he finally let us take his photo.

Do you have wildlife or wildflower photos? We’d love to see your signs of spring! Please send them to us with some info to news@cedarspringspost.com.

Birds enjoy a bite after the storm

These birds didn’t let a little wind and snow come between them and their afternoon meal Monday.

Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us this photo of two robins—yes, you read it right—eating berries from her mock cranberry tree Monday afternoon. “Maybe spring is just around the corner!” she said.

Diane Noorthoek Butler sent us this photo of a beautiful cardinal at her feeder in Sand Lake.

Remember that now is the time to help feed the birds, during these cold winter months.

Check out what types of birds were seen in the area on January 1, during our annual Christmas Bird Count.
