      Birmingham Bill, Punxsutamey Phil at odds over spring predictions

      Birmingham Bill believes spring is right around the corner. But fellow groundhog Punxsutamey Phil doesn't agree. He says it's another six weeks away.

      On this Groundhog Day, zoo keepers at the Birmingham Zoo waited for Birmingham Bill to emerge.

      "Bill, everyone wants to know- what's it going to be this year?." asked a staff member.

      After last week's winter weather, most people wanted good news and Bill delivered. He did not see his shadow. That means spring is on its way.

      But earlier in the day, Punxsutamey Phil saw his shadow.

      Which groundhog is right? We'll have to wait six weeks to see.
