Bob Levy : the musical countdown [cont.]

Bob writes: On Friday February 22, arguably the most wintry of days so far this season, as six inches of snow covered Central Park and more was falling I heard a male Northern Cardinal sing. That was the first cardinal song I detected this year and I took it as a musical sign that Spring is near. Since then I have heard other males sing and just yesterday I saw the surest sign that Spring is closing in: I watched a male Northern Cardinal feed his mate. Nest building can’t be far away now. Keep your ears open. More songs are on the way.
