The swallows may return to Capistrano each spring, but here in Artesia, turkey vultures, more commonly known as buzzards, may be the official heralders of planting season. While that may be an “old wives’ tale” to some, the buzzards have been spotted lately returning in droves to Artesia. Vultures could be spotted in the trees at Central Park this morning and soaring in numbers upwards of 60 over Wal-Mart Tuesday afternoon. The mesquites are getting their leaves, as well, so according to this reporter’s mother, if you also hear the turtle dove calling, it may indeed be time to plant corn.
