The Robins Have Returned March 28, 2011

I know that Spring is truly on its way when the Robins return. I thought I heard them several times last week, but didn’t see one. They’ve finally returned to our yard, even though there is still snow on the ground.

This robin was scavenging up pieces of suet that the woodpeckers had knocked loose from the feeder above. I think the ground is still too frozen to get worms!

    I have not seen a robin yet in my Michigan garden. It is always so exciting to see the first one. I know others in my area have seen them, so it should not be long for me.

      Hey Zoey – I’m sure it won’t be long! I love hearing the robins singing in the morning as I wake. A true and sure sign that spring is here and summer is close behind. 🙂
