Appreciation of nature´s wonderful creatures,especially at this time of year.
You'll be watching when they return...nice to know! Meanwhile, facing fall and winter!
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.
I love your love of robins ...
Oh Lucy...it is expectation and competition with my husband and me...who can spot the first robin and the first heron....of springSomething to look forward...sort of ying and yang of life I guessGoldenbird...I LOVE robinsand their many songs and their quirky hopping alnog the lawn with their heads tilted toward the ground..and their delight after a rain! oh and the way they really bathe in the birdbath
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!
they are rather plump this yearI counted 13 in one tree

Lovely picture and beautiful words, Suz !Have a great weekend,Sylvia
i love watching the birds in our yard. we are filling the feeder often. enjoy your weekend.
At least they'll be back in the spring. :-)
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:)
"till my words form steam"..lovely image! Wait till spring for nature's everlasting cycle..
Pure poetry, Suz...as always...words that lift my spirit and make me smile.
Miss the songs... anticipate the return in the spring... lovely post.

Beautiful poetic farewell to the robins, Suz!
