Not unusual to have the first bird back back well in advance of others - last year Hart arrived March 11, Joli on the 19th, Faith on the 22nd and Princess not until the 26th.  In fact, 6 of our breeding birds arrived in April, 6 arrived in March.

Can't quite say it is a slower start to this year, just that we started a few days later than last year.

They're all going to find it a tad 'Chilly' here in the next week or so - The high on Saturday is -7, going down to -13 at night!   :o :-X

we have none yet, that I have seen. some say they have seen other places in city but I have seen none.

gord drove almost to Alberta border the other day and he said no sightings and  no ducks yet. lots of snow.
it is better cold so maybe some are delayed by USA weather also

guess it is wait an d see.

Either they've all turned tail (wing) and gone back down south or they're frozen solid somewhere in Winnipeg! - Brrrrrr!!!  :o :-\

If I had a choice, I think I would also wait for warmer weather. ;)

....sigh....It's going to be a late start to the season!  :( - Hope the birdies that are already here are coping with the deep freeze!!  I think of them in the morning when the temps are announced as -27 or -22 - I mean REALLY!!!  :-\ 8) ::)

Tomorrow is going to be a repeat of today's temps. This Old bird hopes they don't start their canoodling down south.  :-\

No Princess or Smiley yet.  :-[ - Smart of them to stay away from the cold - but still hope to see at least Princess swoop in like last year and claim her castle!!  :-* ;D

I'm starting to think that wherever the rest of the birdies are waiting for warmer weather, is where they'll end up staying - as this STUPID weather is not leaving us!!!  :-\
