I was feeding my baby this morning when I heard it! Sitting half asleep, rocking with my eyes closed, I heard the most wonderful sound... the gentle tones of a chirping bird. I am happy to report that the birds are starting to arrive in the arctic! It may seem silly but where I live the birds leave for the winter and return at the end of spring. I'll have to get my parka on later and go outside to see if I can catch a glimpse of one too! Pretty soon there will be birds singing around the clock as the midnight sun will be shining above all through the night (24 hours - 7 days a week of total sunlight). Yippee! Warmer weather is a coming!!!
