Two days ago, on March 15, as has happened according to legend on that date since 1819. the buzzards returned to Hinckley, Ohio. It certainly is true that a few buzzards were seen in Hinckley on that date, although whether this was the sighting of returning buzzards rather than of permanent residents is a matter not past dispute.

I don't think that I have ever been to Hinckley, which is on the Western side of the Cuyahoga river which I seldom cross. Still I find the legend of the returning buzzards, for some reason, quite pleasing, perhaps because I have also never been to San Juan Capistrano. where the swallows will return in a couple of days on March 19.
