Good Morning!

• In case the lousy weather yesterday got you thinking spring would never come, there have been a few hopeful signs from the natural world in the past couple days. The conservation group Seatuck has reported that one of their observers found fresh alewife scales on Wednesday along a tributary to the Peconic River, the first sign of the beginning of the spring alewife run. Also on Wednesday, Group for the East End Vice President Aaron Virgin reported to North Fork birders that he spotted an osprey in West Creek in New Suffolk, right in time for their annual appearance around St. Patrick’s Day.

• Don’t forget to read The Beacon’s profile of Ivan Kustura, the juror for East End Arts’ new show, which is opening tonight in East End Arts’ East Main Street gallery, from 5 to 7 p.m.

• The Custer Institute in Southold is hosting its annual St. Patrick’s Day party Saturday night at 6 p.m. Chuck Cardona is making corned beef and cabbage, and they’re asking all interested astronomers to bring a dish or a dessert or just show up and join the party, which begins at 6 p.m. More information on other St. Patrick’s Day events is online here.

• The North Fork Community Theatre’s production of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and Northeast Stage’s Production of “Shakespeare: Tales and Tempests” open tonight, joining the Hampton Theatre Company, whose “The Foreigner” opened last night, in spicing up the theater offerings on the Forks. More information on all three productions is online here.

• The Harlem Wizards are coming to Westhampton Beach High School tonight at 7 p.m. for a fundraiser for the school. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for kids. More information is online here.

• Keep up to date on the happenings on the East End with The Beacon’s events calendar, online here. If you have an event you’d like us to publicize, please send information to Thank you!

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.
