Certainly? Exactly how certain are you?

Sure many migrate, but if you live anywhere in PA, chances are there are robins around and closer than you might think.

Don't trust me. Look it up.

Redwing blackbirds are a better predictor of Spring. IMO[/quote]
Well BD, spring has arrived in SEPA with the first Red-winged BB perch at the top of a tree down the road from my house. Possibly a tri-colored BB too. I assume the RWBB was singing.

The warmup the last several days has finally thawed out the ground in my yard. And my daffodils have finally sprouted.
I also was able to dig up some of the garden and plant lettuce and spinach this afternoon.

another sign of Spring ? - the main stem of the Brandywine is chocolate milk with run off.

Apparently it is 4 degrees at my house this morning. We did not quite make it below zero, but the wind chill of -5.

Not a sign of Spring.

Ground had started to thaw and I had a lot of mud, but it's all as hard as a rock now. Normally I would have had spinach and peas planed by now.

Glad to see that someone besides Art is seeing signs of Spring. We are usually a couple weeks behind you guys.

I saw a yellow butterfly this morning. local creeks still up and muddy - Red Clay, White clay etc but the tribs - broad run etc were clear.

No major damage to my little spring creek thankfully - other than some log revetments need to be put back, if anything it looks better after the 'flush'. its so rewarding to see pea gravel where 3 weeks ago there was silt.

Yesterday morning I heard my first woodcock of the spring. Coolest thing was that I was standing on my front porch at first light when I heard it on the property.

Large flocks of early migrating birds, very late, coming through Saucon Valley today. Especially large mixed blackbird flocks.

I saw a flock of about 30 turkeys yesterday while working in northern Dauphin Co. Four old longbeards were in amongst them struttin' their stuff.
