Many people have their own ideas of what signifies the beginning of spring. For some it is the arrival of the robins. Still others believe it is the first crocus' that bloom when the snow is still on the ground. For me it is the site of the first Turkey Vultures, which happened for me this year on this past Sunday March 8th. We were driving on 71 Highway just south of Savannah, MO I looked towards the north and spotted a Turkey Vulture soaring on the thermals high in the sky. Temperatures were in the low 40's and it was a very cloudy day, rain was on the way. Yet for me it was SPRING!
