The First Rain Birds

Rain Birds are very important because when you first hear their plaintive sound which is hard to describe but you certainly will know it when you hear it as it is a very unique mournful cry, it means relief is on the way.

We all get very excited when we first hear the Rain Birds as we know the warm and sometimes dusty weather of April and May is coming soon to an end.

We have been very lucky this year as April was very pleasant and only a tad warmish for the last few days of the month.

It was not dusty at all but May could be a very different story.  May is the month that a lot of people take vacations but for us Canadians neither April or May are particularly unpleasant.

Once we hear the Rain Birds we feel wonderful knowing our favorite season will soon be upon us.
