Early March, and spring is maybe, just maybe, on the horizon. The light is changing, and there is a new song in the woods.

We think of robins and crocuses as the harbingers of spring, but in the arboreal forests of North America, the chickadee beats them to the punch.

Join host Leigh Melander for Episode 3 of the Myth America podcast, Chickadees and Small Wonders in the coming of Spring, as she explores how the tiny chickadee can open a sense of spring – and a sense of how we build story in our lives on this almost-spring episode of Myth America.
