Off Bolton Notch Road today I watched a Raven building a nest on a  
small ledge on a southwest facing cliff.

In the valley I saw my first groundhog of the season, which led me to  
wonder whether anyone has seen any sign of bear activity yet this  
year, and if any of you meticulous record-keepers might have records  
of first sightings of bear activity in spring?  When is it time to  
bring the feeders in?
