Right now Spring is just a marked day on the calendar.Febuary was a record setting month here in southern New Brunswick with over 70inches of snow in 28 days.This is on top of the 50+inches we've got since the end of December.

I'm happy to say that the first sign of spring arrived this morning just at sunrise. The twittering of a descending woodcock after its sky dance is unmistakeable and I heard it at 6 a.m. Pretty cool.

I can add a couple of others....today, February 28, as I walked the woods of northwestern lower Michigan, I listened to two pileated woodpeckers, squared off in a shouting match...about a quarter-mile apart, each would call and then drum..and then listen for the other to respond.

Another sure-fire early sign is the killdeer, calling from a couple of hundred feet in the air.

Another are the snow fleas....springtails, I believe their actual name....littering the melting snowdrifts like freshly ground pepper.

Hallelujah.....we get to put away the auger and the tip-ups and get back to real life of walleyes on boards and spring toms gobbling from two ridges away.

I see once again--your writers use the face of a pretty young woman to trick everyone in to reading your storys that are just about a bunch of duds--maybe everyone mite read the storys if you just told and showed the truth to start with.!!!!!!Most of the storys are good--but it ticks me off when you think your going to read about something and it is totally different than what the front pages is showing.

The sure sign of spring here are the Meadowlarks. I think they're about a month out.

Most of these things are a month or more away here in Iowa. Howevr, the robins are back and got themselves snowed on Friday night. I went out to get an armload of wood Saturday morning and saw 4 wood ducks haeding north over my place. They were high and traveling fast.

The frogs are singing here in GA, but you did leave something off of the list:
Allergies - the nose-running, eyes-swollen, sinus pain time of year that makes me want to remove my head until summer arrives.
