Getting Up Early in Spring

In my column for May 2/3, I wrote about the benefits of getting up earlier in May than you did in January. Some of those benefits include...

"You can watch moths flying bat-like in spring." This is a Luna Moth I found resting on an early May morning.

"Two male cardinals begin singing first, one on each side of the yard. Their adjoining territories meet here."

"A hairy woodpecker drums on a nearby telephone pole. Telephone poles – as well as drainpipes and metal signs – serve as God’s gift to woodpeckers. They resonate beautifully..."

"Toads trill weakly, their night romance concluded."
