Started seeing some flying around 30 miles north of Taunton a few days ago. 

Returned out here too. One well known roost had close to 30 last weekend.

Just had a male bluebird at the suet feeder. I'm in Dartmouth, two miles north of Buzzard's Bay. Down here we have Great Blue Herons year 'round. Saw one flying up Slocum's River on Sunday. Same for Turkey Vultures--see 'em in every month. What's interesting is that this is the second year I've seen wintering Black Vultures. Never used to see them much north of Pennsylvania, nevermind in winter.

Not exactly a bird of spring, but I was walking the dog a few nights ago during that super bright full moon. I live right on Agawam Mill pond so we usually head down to the water and let the pup sniff at the water. I get down to the waters edge and there is a massive swan about twenty feet out in the water, sitting there very still just looking at us. The moon was so bright and the water was so calm and you could see this swan clear as day. Very eerie, almost dream-like. Tried to get a few pictures but it was just too dark. 

 

Dais didn't like it and wanted to get the hell out of there so we did.
