It's interesting that the speaker here clearly pronounces the "v" in "primavera" as an English "v" sound. I don't recall hearing that pronunciation anywhere else on Duolingo. Elsewhere a "v" is consistently pronounced with a soft English "b" sound.
The Spring is sprung, the grass is riz,
I wonder where the birdies is.

A coil spring is un resorte or un muelle .
There are several meanings of "spring". See http://www.wordreference.com/es/translation.asp?tranword=spring
I googled it, I think the correct word(s) would be muelle elastico, but someone with more knowledge of spanish would need to verify that.
whenever there has been an article (el/la) before the noun... unless the context of the sentence requires to use it... it has been acceptable to just say "spring" or "winter" or "summer"
She said to type what I hear. She said, «La primavera,» and I heard, “The spring.” I think that is progress! :-D (But it was, as expected, marked incorrect). :-(
Guys, I think we are fine with just "The spring." and "Spring." We don't need every translation.
