We all, from pole to pole, share the same progression of days, weeks, and months that comprise a year. Yet my months in the upper latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere play out rather differently from those of my compatriots down below the equator. I only share this as a warning to readers who may not be in touch with the joy tinged with relief evoked by the arrival of March after a long, cold winter. Deb Sewell of Sand Creek Almanac, hosting again 3.5 years after her first time at the helm, taps into the magic of March in her world-wide-wonderful edition of I and the Bird #120.

Whatever March means to you, you’ll undoubtedly be writing about it in the next two weeks. If you happen to mention birding or wild birds (and mention them well) you should share your March musings with us at I and the Bird. Our next host is the amazing Amber Coakley of Birder’s Lounge and House of Herps. Send your links and summaries to me or Amber (acoakley AT birderslounge DOT com) by 3/16 for the March 18 edition.
