A couple of days ago the first birds of spring arrived on the farm. Today I noticed that the first of the spring flowers were blooming, the lowly Skunk Cabbage. They usually start poking their heads up just as the snow starts to melt. 

They can be found along the Red Cedar State Trail just south of Irvington. In a few weeks they will be all along the trail south of Irvington. They are usually found in the ditches along the trail in the muck and mud. They are not the most beautiful flower around but since they are the only game in town they get most of my attention. 

While photographing the Skunk Cabbage I noticed quite a few Northern Cardinals flying around in the area. I also notice several large flocks of Sandhill Cranes flying north.
