First real humidity of the year today … though it wasn’t blazing wiith sunlight today, it got up into the high 70s, and the weather was definitely balmy. The trees are in full bloom — magnolias, cherry, etc. Haven’t seen all that many squirrels around the house lately, for whatever reason, though they seem to be fairly active around campus. Have seen and heard tons of birds, mostly robins and starlings, with the occasional woodpecker and cardinal thrown in for measure. I’ve heard some unusual birdsong, but nothing I’ve been able to identify.
