This warming, of more than 30 degrees C in the last few days, is usually followed by a negative AO pattern due to the warmth, and hence above normal heights, seeping down into the upper troposphere. If this were to verify, then the eastern part of the country would revert to below normal temperatures, and possible above normal snowfall. It is too early, however, to predict with much confidence which solution will verify.

I found a post by him on another site dated 1/3/06, he's still at it.
"Try not to become involved in the "current thinking" that because of the recent warm temperatures that the winter will now be all warm. I do not agree with this. My calculations clearly show a return of very cold arctic air to the United States as Jupiter's influence switches southward, and the Pacific jet flow begins to wane. I see this happening close to and after January 15 when Jupiter's massive magnetic influence allows more moisture to enter via the southern regions of the country while the current Venus retrograde signals arctic pressure from the north. This will bring about very large snow events, ice events, etc., due to the increased precipitation and colder temperatures.
Expect "extremes of weather" and yes - the colder weather WILL return and with a vengence to many parts of the country - the Northwest, the Mountain & Plains states as far as Texas and to the Upper Midwest and the Northeastern U.S. I would not put away those winter clothes just yet."

I can confirm what you saw. I witnessed the very same in Maryland today. Hundreds of flocking crows and maybe starlings(?). (There was definitely a second species of flocking birds.)
In any event, I immediately noticed that these birds were traveling north...but because I was engaged in something, forgot about it until you posted your experience here.
I will research what are the migration patterns of crows, if possible.
But I agree, it seems way too early.

...I looked into the sky and was shocked to see a flock (at least 40-60 birds) of what looked to be either geese or ducks flying. My first thought was, "Damn I wish I had a rifle!"....
