[CT Birds] true sign of spring?

Each spring, sometimes as early as late March, but usually more like 1st week of April, the Pine Warblers start trilling from the White Pine and Hemlock stands behind the house.  This, to me, marks the arrival of Spring.    And this year, it can't come soon enough.......

So, a few sightings on the list have been accompanied by the statement "spring is here" or "spring is nigh" --- which, on this 20 degree morning, strikes me as similar to the characters in a horror movie saying "Don't worry, we're safe now!"  :)

But that brings me to the question: so, what bird do you think does mark the official arrival of spring?

I vote Palm Warbler,
