I found these crocuses blooming at Schenley Plaza and saw my first turkey vulture in Oakland this afternoon.  Spring is on its way!

Update, Friday morning, 5:15am:  Robins are singing in the dark outside my house.  This is new; they must have arrived overnight.

Update, Saturday morning, 9am: Grackles in my back yard, the first of 2010.

    Oh my goodness, what a beautiful site. My robins have returned over the last couple of days too.

    If you go to Reynolds St, in Pt. Breeze, and look up the hill (We were in front of Pino’s, so looking left) there is a half-timbered house painted red and green. The yard and the adjoining yards are COVERED in a mass of purple crocuses! I have never seen so many! Look quick. I fear the predicted rain will ruin the sight. My daffodils are sprouting. Spring is coming! Darn groundhog! Anne

    I saw a couple of robins in my yard last month, during the *blizzard*. They were looking mighty confused!
