Today I am sharing a photo from last year of a Robin in my yard. I've been seeing many Robin's lately now that spring is here.

  2. Well, you do know the early bird gets the worm and my clock says it's just past 6am so I'd say big worm breakfast for both of us. :-)

  4. Robins are about the only kind of bird I ever see in my yard. But I guess they are better than no birds at all

  5. They are better than no birds. Ann, do you have a bird feeder? I do and it brings in most of the birds - a pair of cardinals (regulars for years and they always come together - so cute), house finch, gold finch, chickadees, sparrows and others. But seriously, if the food runs dry for long they all go elsewhere.

  6. Robins are my favorite kind of bird. That's mostly because they let me take their pictures, and sometimes even pose. I see them everywhere here, and they were the first bird I could identify.

  7. So funny how common robins are elsewhere, but here in SoCal, it's a treat to see one!

  8. Ratty - I'm right with you. Robins and then there are the ducks and geese if I go to the River Walk because people like to go feed the ducks and geese. Actually my closeups of a grackle and a sparrow were from there too. If you don't have food for them it's kind of uncomfortable actually. Like they might turn on you.

    Jannis - it is interesting to hear how the bird populations are different in different places. Here I can easily have 4 or 5 robins hopping around in my yard looking for worms and bigger fields will be full of them.
