Robins that is. I was walking through my favorite thicket over at the golf course across the road with my dog, and I heard dozens of birds. I made out the familiar call of the robins and another call I didn't recognize, and sure enough there was a gregarious flock made up of dozens of robins and cedar waxwings.
For me, the confirmation that spring has truly arrived is the return of my favorite red-winged blackbirds. Last year, they were here on March 12. Just three weeks to go!!!
