Harbingers of Spring: the robins have arrived

Over the last couple of weeks the North American Robins have begun to arrive and there are now good numbers flitting about the receding snow and the newly exposed grass.  In this part of the world, they are one of the most promising signs that spring has successfully beaten back winter.  I’m very happy to see them making that case both here in Bragg Creek and in Banff.

  1. I’m looking forward to having them follow me when I weed the flower beds. They hop along about 5 feet behind me, checking whether I have unearthed something interesting for them to eat.

    • Opportunistic creatures for sure. Have fun leading the parade!

  2. I love these photos, Chris! Each one is charming and artistic. Hard to choose a favorite, but the fence post photo is wonderful for the composition and the unusual sight of three robins perched on narrow posts.

    • Thanks Karen. Once the latest round of snow melts, I’m looking forward to spending some more time with them.
