I Tawt I Taw a...Robin?

There's snow everywhere...I mean EVERYWHERE. It's hard to believe that spring might be anywhere near Ohio right now. So imagine my surprise when I THOUGHT I saw a robin today in the huge old tree across the street! Wow. I ran to get the binoculars, but by the time I got back, the elusive robin was gone--if that was indeed what it was.

Even if it wasn't really a robin, it did give me hope that perhaps robins are on their way...maybe they've filed their flight patterns already and are thinking they might as well head north since there's snow in the south anyway.

I have to have hope, y'know. Otherwise, I'd be tempted to crawl under the covers and hibernate for six more weeks.

Happy spring! Soon.

We, too are covered in a blanket of snow. Over the weekend, I stood under the eave of the house and capture pictures of birds at the feeders where my hubby had replenished the the snow poured down.
Blessings, andrea

I saw a robin this morning - and the snow which never managed to melt from the last two months at least is now being covered by new snow... sigh. We also recently had a yellow-headed blackbird and according to the bird book, they winter in Mexico!

I love your style of writing and how it brings life to the pages!

I enjoyed this little story, it reminded me of my own little bird (Tweety Bird)- Kari. Smiles.

Blessing to you too, Diane Casteel
