Sign of Spring

One of the sure signs of spring growing up as a boy in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains was the call of the Western Meadowlark. On Saturday Lenore and I were serenaded by a Meadowlark from one of the refuge signs. There has to be a pun hidden in this somewhere? It was music to my ears and it brought back many memories of wandering through the neighborhood where I grew up imitating the Meadowlarks and having them call back to me. I can still do a pretty realistic call of one and surprisingly they still answer.
