I hate to take issue with Norbert, as I certainly more often than not agree 
with him, but the butterflies he lists are both adult hibernators and so 
technically could be seen on any unusually warm day during the winter -- as 
such, I'm not sure you can claim this as a *real* sign of spring.  But it 
is always nice to see the butterflies flying, and it *does* indicate warmth 
at least!
