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.

What a difference a week makes

Signs of Spring

By Judy Reed

A week ago last Tuesday, we were hit with the second snowstorm in a week and kids all across Kent County had last Tuesday and Wednesday of school. By the weekend, however, it started warming up, and as of this past Tuesday, all of the snow was gone. Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us two photos showing the difference. “I thought this was quite a contrast in photos,” she said.

She took the photo of the cardinal sitting on snow-covered branches on Tuesday, March 1. The second photo, of a blooming crocus, she took on March 8. What a difference!

Our publisher, Lois Allen, spotted a robin in a local business parking lot and snapped this photo. So she gets kudos for the first robin sighting photo of the season! We know that some robins winter here, probably from further north, so it’s hard to know if it’s one that’s come back, but we choose to be optimistic and believe spring is right around the corner!

Thanks so much, Mary Lou!

Signs of Spring

Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us this picture of a hawk having his afternoon meal in the lilac bush right outside her kitchen window.

Ranger Steve Mueller identified it as a Cooper’s Hawk. The Cooper’s Hawk can be found from southern Canada to Northern Mexico, and usually migrates south for the winter.  They mainly prey on smaller birds such as robins, doves, woodpeckers, and others.

Thanks for your photo, Mary Lou, this gives us hope that springs is right around the corner!
