Red-winged Blackbird Sign of Spring

Aaah, the sun is shining, snow melting, and a Red-winged Blackbird is singing from the pine above our bird feeders. This is a sign of spring here in NH.
What signs of spring are you seeing where you are?

We have Red-winged Blackbird here in NY's Capital Region, too. Some people have already reported American Woodcocks! In my yard, Tufted Titmice are singing "here-HERE, here-HERE," even as the winter juncos continue to forage on the ground for seed.

Hi! We had red-winged blackbirds here last week! I'm in Kentucky, so maybe they were making there way to you and announcing Spring along the way. :)

There is only the tiniest patch of snow left in my backyard! The robins are making themselves obvious!

I'm seeing red-winged blackbirds too, and Canada geese returning to the lake I visit is definitely a sign of spring.

I am seeing a couple of Red Robins here in Chicago.

down here on P.I. a few killdeer have shown up. There are also at least 3 great Horned sitting on nests in the near by areas.

I heard Kildeer in the park a few days ago. Also, the flickers have started drumming on poles.
