Oh! Nesting pairs everywhere ..

As I walk around the open areas and trails, I see nesting pairs of birds everywhere.

The Canadian geese are all paired up. The female eating while the male guards. One sleeping, the other watching. The mallard duck pairs are spreading out to different areas in the swamps securing a private territory.  A pair of mourning doves resting quietly at the foot of a dense shrub. The slender and delicate bird perfectly camouflaged with the brown branches. When I see the red cardinal in the woods,  I know that its dull colored partner is somewhere close hidden in the thickset.

It is as if I am witnessing Spring for the first time in my life ..
