Turkey Vultures are rapidly joining Robins as the earliest returning migrants we see in the spring. This is an old picture, but we saw one ten days ago, and have seen them soaring over the neighbourhood several times since. Don't forget the Sand hill Cranes and Tundra Swans we saw on our drive to Barrie either. And a friends reported a Great Blue Heron yesterday.
And this for a distant silhouette of a Cardinal up high in a tree. We've hardly seen them all winter, but now they're singing like mad around every corner in the neighbourhood!
