Well I'm sure robins don't make hasty decisions about where to park. They must know the weather is on the upswing--a good omen!
It's always nice to see signs of spring around the corner! Forget weather forecasters, birds know best! :)
Good sign ! It's so hard to take a picture of birds, generally, the time you focalize, they fly off !Except for audacious birds as pigeon; But those little Robin are so cute. Great snapshot, Sue
Isn't it nice!!!?
I am so glad you posted this robin. I thoroughly enjoyed this post. Patty and I counted about 13 or more in the neighbor's yard. They were eating the leftover crabapple seeds the starlings that devoured the whole treefull, left fall to the ground. There might have been more as they kept flying off and coming back. Skywatch or Pat and Abe
Hi Sue, can't believe you have robins already. Yesterday could have fooled us here n IL, warm and pouring rain like a spring day. Today the water is frozen and the skies are bleak. Have a wonderful weekend.Marnie
Sue,Yes, the robins are everywhere. Hundreds were in our meadow this morning (looking for worms).Cameron
When I lived in Maine, the first robin always signaled the start of spring. Here they are year round residents so it is not the same in Tennessee. Spring must be there!
It's great to see those first few Robins. I bet they'll be regular visitors. Like others have mentioned I always take them as a sign of spring!
It's comforting for me to know the Robins are surfacing not too terribly far from here. I am snowed in today and have to admit it's adding, just a bit, to my cabin fever! I have lots to do and today it's the final Christmas put away. Have a great weekend. Nice blog.
I'm so happpy to see your robin.....none have appeared here at our farm in Iowa, yet. Also....I just love your header photo of the pansies in the tub. Very beautiful!
I've seen a few the past several days too! Spring!!!
Oh I just love these photos...I came over here from Skywatch and stopped at these robins...very nice...like your pansies also...happy almost spring...
That's so interesting! We have Robin's here all year, but just this week they started chirping...But we have another serious storm on the way, or so we hope.
How great to see Robins this early! Is this the normal time for you to see them? I think it is usually the 2nd or 3rd week of April when they come to MN.
hey Sue, Our robins never leave but each spring there does seem to be a huge influx of them! I liked your sky shots too. Gail
I'm looking for signs of spring, too. Haven't seen any robins yet.
it is always exciting to see the first robins come back!
