    A gaggle of geese flying north! The dogs were barking at them.

    Also will be in the 50's today.

    Good news!

    Thousands maybe millions of geese stayed here in So Ohio all winter. Saw a whole flock of robins here this week, doubt they went to far south this year either.

    There was a buzzard sighting yesterday - sign of a early spring in these parts.

    We have seen 3 or 4 flocks of snow geese going north but no Canadian geese yet nor sandcranes...

    No problem, that was my sense of humor. I'm autistic, I see things as they are and that piece of crap is butt ugly. We're talking about birds that make spring worth looking forward to.

    OTT, sun is trying to come out. Think I'll back away from this for a while, go out and see what other early spring signs are out there, maybe it'll warm up up enough my honey bees will be out.

    Have a good day guys/gals, I'll check back in later.

    Just saw another gaggle they were making a lot of noise!

    Buzzards seem to hang around here all year. About a month ago saw about 15 having lunch on a road kill deer. Maybe bambi.

    Here in SE Michigan it is 22° and snowing, at least 6” so far today. It seems like we have had temperatures that have rarely been above 30° for the last two months. I know my heating bills have never been higher.

    The single best indication that winter has broken, that I know of, are when Woodcock are migrating back north from their wintering grounds in states along the gulf. You can go outside at dusk and see them little birds sailing overhead, hear dozens spread out in fields peenting and doing their aerobatic courtship dance.

    Sounds of peenting and wing whistle

    Snowing like a banshee and cold as feck. When it warms up into the low 30's next month I've got new shocks sitting here waiting to get put on my truck.
    Algore is an asshole.

    I haven't saw flocks but I've seen robins. The robins did not leave here in Central Kentucky this Winter and Lt.D is further North than me.
    WEIRD - IMO

    I hope they aren't coming this way. It is cold! Also the lakes are frozen. If you see those same geese flying back South twice as fast they probably made it close to here. ;)
