Hi Marcia- This _can't_ be a sign of spring. This is incredibly early.
There is only 1 eBird record for _March_
in Washington State (near Portland); none for February and very,very few
for Oregon or Northern California. You should try to get photos
and submit them to eBird as an exceptional record. If you don't use eBird,
perhaps someone local could submit it for you.
This could be a very odd overwintering bird, but two together is really
unprecedented
