The Ides of March
Sounds like a good theme to meander on. In Lithuanian they call March Kovas, which literally means to battle, and it certainly feels that way with snowy nights and sunny days, with the temperature swinging about 20 degrees from day to night. But, my wife tells me the month is probably named after the rook (corvus frugilegus), which returns each spring.
