I had a compact flock of 16 mature Little Blue Herons NW of Church Point on 3/7/17 that looked suspiciously like incoming migrants. Had they been flying along the beach anywhere along the coast, they surely would have been migrants. Tuesday was the same day that Swallow-tailed Kites showed up all along the coast from west to east.

Speaking of very early birds, I saw two CHIMNEY SWIFTS over the LSU campus in Baton Rouge yesterday. Not the earliest reported this spring for the US, but almost (there are records for southern Alabama and New Jersey). I also saw a SWALLOW-TAILED KITE flying over campus, headed east.
