LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Have you noticed flowers blooming in your backyard?

News 8 Chief Photographer Chuck Oedsma traveled around the Coulee Region searching for signs of spring for this week's Eye Piece.

He found some flowers blooming and birds chirping. If you listen close enough to the sound in the video, you can hear cranes and a rooster pheasant.

Every Friday on News 8 at 6, we’ll feature a photo essay from our talented photographers.
