Judi Rabi writes on e-Birds:

Ahh...Another sign of spring: a few turtles basking in the sun on the rocks along the Lake.

PS from Marie
Other signs of incipient spring:
Hellebore orientalis [Lenten Rose] blooming at the Ladies Pavillion
Cornus mas beginning to bud
Birds singing -- housefinches, cardinals, Juncos trilling
