As I was riding the bus into downtown this morning I wondered when the Canada Geese might arrive. The instant I did I saw a pair near the University Bridge. Given that this morning looked and felt more like mid November than the beginning of April I suspect they may be wishing they hadn't arrived here yet. Crows have also begun arriving, but they'll probably have an easier time of it until the snow is gone given their scavenging habits. On the other hand, the hawk I've heard here in in the East College Park neighbourhood might have some trouble spotting prey, assuming it isn't still hiding under the snow.
