In our yard, cardinals, juncos, chickadees and robins, plus the doves!

Turkeys are everywhere!

Nice.

I'm still waiting to see turkeys in our yard (as far as I can remember, I only saw one once--when I startled it as I came around a bend in a path). I wouldn't mind seeing them on a regular basis here.

We saw about a hundred turkeys in one field we passed today! There were also about six in our yard this morning.

Never mind the first Robin of spring, I see them all winter. Now I've seen the first Blue Herons of spring and the first outdoor spider. Now I know it's real!

~smile~ I had a feeling I might have to be careful what I wish for.

Spring is here--that clinches (sp.) it! Now if only it would stop snowing and the temperatures would get more seasonable!

Not to downplay the spider, but, FYI, I saw a grasshopper this past December! (It was a 45-50 degree day as I remember.) I'm not sure why I never got around to posting it--I have it in a folder somewhere, so I guess I still could.
