Springtime visitors

Dee Shoemaker took this photo of a hummingbird, apparently chilled beyond moving and lying among the fern fronds on her deck at Theodosia when a recent cold snap swept through. “After the day warmed, he woke up and flew away,” she said.

Mike Shoemaker snapped this photo of coyote pups emerging from their den near Haskins Ford.

Marilyn Tilley is one of several Ozark Countians who have shared photos of bright yellow orioles pausing here for snacks of jelly, oranges or suet as they make their way north.

Springtime in Ozark County means the flowers are blooming, trees are budding, babies are arriving and colorful migrators are passing through.
