Any one getting reports of much earlier than expected migrants?

here in Ohio, we've had common yellowthroats a month ahead of schedule, and recent reports of alder flycatcher and black-throated blue warbler (the latter supposedly photodocumented, but AKAIK, not posted to the web).

1. My personal experience....

my bellweather bird is the Turkey Vulture since it is easy to see as soon as it arrives. My first sighting in E OH this year was 3/6. Last year (a bad one), it wasn't until 4/13, but in 2009, it was 3/12. So, from my records for the past three years, with it a week early. I would have to go into boxes to get the records I have for prior years.
