The Robins Are Back!

Way up in the tall trees,
the robins have returned,
lit by the early morning sun.

Robins are one of my favorite birds. They signal spring to me. I love the shot of them gathered in a tree.

Great photo! We also have seen them in our backyard. I didn't think they were due back until early Spring. Nonetheless, it's nice to see them.

Linda and Purple Flowers,
Thanks and I also always thought of them as a sign of spring but they seem to have been around here off and on all winter which I find unusual. I sure do hope they are finding enough food to eat. I notice them around our apple trees. Take care!

Nan, that's what I was thinking, perhaps they are looking for food near you. How exciting to see 3 in that tree.
I love the photo of your kitten sleeping with the mittens and with her companion. So sweet!

Hi Lori, Thanks for stopping by today and actually there were probably at least a dozen robins yesterday and they were back today. They do eat apples so I'm very glad we have some from our trees to share with them.
Our cat, Polly, though she's going on 16 (can't believe it) seems more kitten-like to us now...she's so sweet and I she always looks so cozy and comfy.
