The Robins are getting ready


They are flocking in my yard
getting ready to leave
scarfing up every berry they can find
and I touch the window glass
lean close till my words
form steam
God speed my dear friends
I will miss your songs

  3. When I see the first Robin in spring, I feel like spring is alive and getting near. They are a hardy little bird and have lived through many springs where snow came in spring and then when it warmed up you knew they survived when mama Robin and papa robin are looking for forward to bringing more baby robins for us to watch.

  6. Right after I read your post today I went to the kitchen and saw a robin outside the kitchen window who was so big that at first glance I thought he was a red squirrel ; ) Apparently there are plenty of berries around here!

  13. We are very fortunate to live in the flight path of migrating birds. Therefore the birds we see change with the seasons.
    I will also miss the robins, the redwing blackbirds too.
    They will be replaced with juncos and chickadees, I love thier happy songs:)
