Wrens heralded our arrival in canyon country, their cascading songs carrying across the waters of the Colorado. Back in Wyoming, meadowlarks, red-winged blackbirds, mourning doves and robins fill the early morning light outside the bedroom window with sound.

Their voices are a welcome harbinger of spring!
