Red wing black birds are back already

The extra warm weather last week appeared to have brought a flock of Red Wing black birds. Usually, they don't arrive in Northern IL until later. I can hear their distinctive calls in the background. They are one of my wife's favorite birds.

My neighbor isn't so fond of them, since he keeps getting attack by them when he's jogging. Unfortunately, they also attack egrets and herons that occasionally show up near our yard.

The duck trio (a single female with two males) appears to be back already. They migrated out back in Dec, but appeared to have returned already.
