I went out for a bike ride around dawn today on my usual route -- CR543, east of Pocahontas in north Cape county.   Lots of birds have started singing actively -- robins, song sparrows, meadowlarks, etc.  This trip I had my FOY singing Field Sparrows -- even though I've been seeing them in SE Missouri all winter, they were keeping quiet until now.   I don't keep records on earliest date singing for birds, but it would be interesting to know how this compares with past years.
