We've got baby woodducks out of the nest, resident Canadas sitting on eggs, but several of the northern Atlantic states still have brant loafing around and I saw some coots still here. The snow and ice hasn't melted in much of the breeding range towards the Arctic circle so you should start seeing returning birds and others joining in as they leap frog their way back northward.

Rick, the anticipation of the 'return' itself is killing me!
