I love your observations year to year. Clearly our unseasonal heat wave in March has everything 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

I've noticed not one American Goldfinch at my feeders this spring . Highly unusual. Sad that I've yet to see a Baltimore Oriole with all of the crab apple and apple trees blooming too.

I love your phenological events. Wish I could be dedicated enough to do them here. What a great reference...and interesting to boot!
