Spring Fever at White Rock Lake

The vestiges of winter have finally been discarded, and Mother Nature has started to celebrate Spring at White Rock Lake. And what a wonderful time of the year it is.

Signs of life - this tree is beginning to bud and flower.

Mother Nature has set the procreation clock, and the birds and animals of White Rock Lake have started mating. The fish are spawning, and the trees are beginning to flower or bud. The snakes are out of hibernation, and the wildflowers are beginning to bloom.

In the image below, a male Red Winged Blackbird is performing his mating call routine on top of a blossom-laden cherry tree, on the lake shore near Winfrey Point.
