Snowstorm and Robin

In mid-April, snow fell regularly. The robins had arrived earlier in the month and I wasn’t sure how they would feel about the weather. One afternoon, I photographed this one for a little while. He didn’t seem to have any issues with the white stuff as he bombed through it and flew around to a few different spots around the yard.

  1. Amazing photos, love the contract of the Robin’s plumage against the white of the snow. They are such interesting little big to to watch.

    He looks kind of grumpy to me. Especially in the first photo.

  5. I always feel sorry for them when it snows but know that some overwinter here in the ravines. This one looks so bright against the white.

    • Hi Jane! I’ve heard of the overwinterers but haven’t seen them – yet. I’d get out of here if I had to winter outside – and had wings!
