If the warmer (relatively) temperatures and melting snow wern't enough of a sign, yesterday I saw my first sandhill cranes of the season. I love those birds, they are so dinosaur-like. A few years ago, I was at a metropark after dark walking with a friend, and they were coming in for the evening roost, walking all around us, and they are HUGE on the ground. Almost as tall as I am, and so unafraid they were walking within 10 feet of me or so.

Not my picture, stolen from teh interwebs:

Our dinosaur bird at the lake is the great blue heron. Not so colorful as your beast but magnificent. And it makes seriously prehistoric sounds sometimes. Audubon calls it a harsh croak
