For this year I have decided that spring is not when the phoebe, osprey, or some other bird arrives, it's when the Fox Sparrow departed.  I had the longest run ever of Fox Sparrow in the yard this year.  From February 5th to March 7th I sighted it on 20 different days and there were three of them one day.  I believe it has departed so spring is here.  I am putting my shovels away.  If it returns perchance, you will be the first to know.
