    I have now seen two bird species that are a good month earlier than I can ever remember. One I did not even recognize because it was a juvenile, and by the time they usually get here they are adults, as they are a winter bird for most of the US. We have had a cool summer here, but temperatures are about average right now. What do the birds know?
