They certainly are back. Killdeer in the field at work in Cheshire
(industrial park), walking around on the snow.
A coworker mentioned seeing a bluebird on the grounds a few days ago.

Also, the chipmunks are back under the feeders in the yard and grackles
showed up today.  Song sparrows, doves, cardinals and house finches have
all been singing.  Spring peepers can't be far behind.
