Robin Spring Break

American Robin March 2015
The white bits on the ground in the are yet to melt remnants of snow. Last year at this time there was snow and ice on the ground in many places. The air was gray many days,  like the weather is today, cold and raining. Recently robins where gathering and flying around in a big flock as if they're on spring break. I tried to take a quick photo of them dashing through one of their routes. Alas, that time the point and shoot hope didn't work for me.

    1. Hi Kathryn,
      Thank you. The red snapdragons are the darkest I've ever seen for those blooms. This year I will be sure to mark the envelope I save them in. :)
      Happy Spring to You & Yours!

    1. Hi Debra,
      The robins would have made you smile they were so like a busy chattering flock of sparrows.
      Have a Wonderful Easter!

  3. American robins are quite big. The ones here are rather small.

    1. Hi Loree,
      It seems the female American robins are even larger before the females lay their eggs. Once a sing of spring, they tend to stick around throughout the winter instead of flying south. I think yours don't have the bitter cold to deal with, and don't need the extra weight, maybe.

      Have a wonderful week-end!
