... so return the skunks to Brighton, Mass.

What are your personal harbingers of the seasonal changes?

@jespah,
Spring Peepers (micro-sized frogs).

Second week of April, like clockwork, peep peep peep coming from the woods in the darkening skies of evening.

The local brats are playing later at night in our townhouse complex, with the noise level higher than in winter.

The whales are migrating to the south and pass by our waters every February/March. Prelude to spring and summer...

@CalamityJane,
The winds have come to New Mexico in March, yet again. Time to watch the trash cans fly...

@jespah,
The start & end of daylight saving periods. Big changes at those times always, with considerable adjustments required.

@aidan,
My coworker said her daffodils are up. We still have a foot of snow on the ground. No one knows what's happened to the crocuses; they must still be stuck down there.

Oh, here's another sign -- the newspaper gave info on force-starting forsythia.

For some reason, the Robins never left New Hampshire this winter. I saw several of them back in early February. It was very strange.

Normally Robins eat worms, which they obviously weren't catching with 3 feet of snow on the ground, so I did some googling and found that Robins can eat all kinds of stuff, so they must have decided to stay for the winter and become scavengers this year. Not sure why.
