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.
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!
