We have kingbirds, 8 days ahead of last year's return date.
They must have been tricked into believing the reports of a balmy March and may feel a little bit bait-and-switched by today's intense rain and heavy winds. Maybe they can huddle with the barn swallows, whose numbers seem to be doubling every third day.
The new Kingbird tee-shirts (thank you KCY!) beat the live birds by about two weeks.
