A sad kind of "first-of-year" (FOY) report here: Yesterday morning (7 Mar) I noticed the carcass of a Turkey Vulture along Hoffman Road just north of Monmouth. 

Quite a few Brewer's Blackbirds also seem to be splitting off from winter flocks and turn up in roadside areas where they breed, putting them at some risk of becoming road-kills too -- though it's remarkable how savvy many of them seem to be about motor-vehicle traffic.
