These Robins are a bit early

I am looking out the kitchen window at more snow falling and the weather still cold. It is supposed to warm up today. This post is one of hope that spring, in many forms, is just around the corner. The corner is sometimes longer for some than others.



When temperature is hovering around freezing and yesterday’s storm blew the 6 – 7 inches of snow around like a blizzard, Robins are searching for food in my front yard.

At first there was one; then another and then the whole yard where there was no snow or ice, was full of them.
Hopefully they will survive the single digit temps that is supposed to be here for the next few nights.

  1. Thank you for the reblog. Tonight I am hearing the wind howling outside and the expected temp will be 6 degrees by morning. Spring – we can only hope that it is soon. I feel so for these birds out in the cold.
