Hi all,
The snow is starting to fall here on Sunday, late afternoon.
Earlier in the day I had my first Common Grackle for the year in my yard. 
That is the earliest for me, as usually I don't see one until sometime 
between the end of Feb and end of March.
(The last sightings of my yard year have been in Nov.)

I also had 6 cowbirds come by today.
And, my overwintering Chipping Sparrow was still seen as of yesterday.
