It's March 15th... and you know what that means… That's right; it's time for the buzzards to show up. Yes, it's Buzzard Day in Hinkley, Ohio
It's a folklore tradition that dates back nearly two centuries.
Every March 15th, the buzzards return to a northeast Ohio park... not too far from Cleveland.
The first buzzard was spotted across a tree line around 8:30 this morning.
According to tradition, the buzzards were first attracted by thawing livestock carcasses that had been killed by farmers.
There are no thawing animal bodies now, but still the buzzards always return on this date.
And they're greeted by several hundred "buzzard people" each year.
The buzzards may not have the panache of a groundhog, but at least they don't pretend to know what the weather will be.
