Wow, that's early

We've had more than our share of warm weather, but nothing green is yet emerging - no budding, nothing like that. My yard, on the north slope of a large hill, is still well and truely buried under snow.
I haven't seen much in the way spring birds yet either, though the river's been open, at least in certain stretches, and geese and swans are there to be seen. I'm not convinced they all ever left.
Eagles have been coming up the creek in front of my house lately. I think this might have more to do with overcrowding on the open water at the river than anything weather related. Population along the river is booming according to the latest count.
