This Morning Outside

Dark-eyed juncos were trilling in the wood pile this morning. I loved hearing them, but in a week, or ten days at the most, they'll be gone, pulled north by the irresistible tide of spring.

Somewhere in Canada they'll line a nest in a pocket-sized nook in a rockface, hidden behind grasses or ferns. Maybe I'll see their young here in Iowa next winter.
