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.
