Spring Robins

Robins are heralds of spring where I live.  Our weather can be 20°C in the middle of winter or have a snowstorm in July so we have a lot of fits and starts between each season.  I know that winter has mostly retreated when the robins return to our backyard.  This one showed up with its partner about a week ago and I photographed him having a drink in the pond over the weekend.  It was a mild winter but I’m still very glad to be enjoying spring now.

  1. I appreciate robins’ arrival with spring as well, but sometimes their loud voicings are SO loud! I find your photographs, especially the first, truly beautiful–a common bird made more gorgeous by the happy viewing and close up. Such talent. Thanks!
