Round Robin, Round Robin

When Becky was in elementary school, she took this book out of the library, Round Robin which happened to be about the same time that my fascination with the Robin and its spring time return started. Now every year, I wait and watch, and wait and watch until I see the first Robin of the season. It's usually in the latter half of February but I find their return a much better harbinger of spring than good old Punxsutawney Phil (well, the robins plus the rabbits in the yard). Anyway, on Friday, I saw the first robins (a few of them) followed immediately by the rabbits Friday night (two in the backyard making Fala go bonkers) - can't ask for more indicators than that the spring is just around the corner!

Now if only I had a picture ...

I wish we had Robins here.

A robin? My god I'd be happy to see that. We've had rabbits all winter though - they like the bird seed dropped by the birds.

Jerry, the squirrels pretty much get the fallen bird seed (after the Mourning Doves have had a crack at it). I haven't seen rabbits though in a couple of months.

So, bring those leftovers down, and we'll show you some Robins.

Angie, I'll try to snap a picture.

I saw a huge flock of robins in a neighbor's yard on my way to work this morning - probably about 30 of them! It was very cool - I've never seen that many at one time.
