The Robins Are Back!

Melting snow, running sap, mud, slightly warmer temperatures - they, for me, all mean nothing.  Great flocks of robins are traveling across the fields.  

The robins are back! 

Now I know that spring is really here!

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.  ~Charles Dickens


  1. Great picture! And yes, let the spring begin!

  2. Robins are safer to photograph, but I still say skunks predict spring just as well. :-) One thing is for sure, they BOTH predict it better than the woodchuck.

  3. I have to agree that skunks predict the spring too. That first whiff...

  4. This year my first whiff came moments before I tackled Shadow, just after he got out the door...
