More signs of spring



I saw a flock of robins in town yesterday. I stopped to watch them but I had forgotten my camera. A few came close enough to my car for me to take these photos with my phone. They were busy eating those berries you see on the ground. In this area, robins usually only stick around for a few weeks this time of year and then move on further north.

Linking to Saturday's Critters, Camera Critters, and The Bird D'Pot.

...it will be several months before they show up at home.

They sure blend in well with the leaves! I love the white eyebrows and suspicious look on the last one! I think he is on to you.

I've not seen any robins here as yet. But we never have them for long, unfortunately! I'm surprised by how well camouflaged they are!

You caught them very well with the phone!

I've gotten used to using the phone as camera. Much easier to carry around. Lazy!

Marleen said...

I always thought robins were more solitary birds, but I don't know if that's true :) Nice photos!

they are feasting at the Robin Buffet On The Ground... and are camoflauged while they do it

Nice pics of the robin. I am so ready for spring, I have been thinking about working in my yard for days but the weather isn't quite warm enough and the ground is too wet to get around. Have a great weekend.

Robins often visit us when I am out digging in the garden.

God bless.

Robins! Always a good sign of better, warmer days ahead!

Spring... how sweet it sounds!

Jean @sonotorganized.com said...

I'm ready for spring! Posted a robin photo this week as well but I think mine would like to be in Florida with your two birds, he was cold! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Angie said...

Sure sign of spring! It will be a couple of months before we see any around here!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

We have Robins here too! And things are so nice a green now after the hard freeze we had this winter! Enjoy your week!

Robins!!! Wonderful. We never see them over here in this part of Florida and I miss them -- just like I miss daffodils and other early spring flowers my daughter keeps telling me are blooming in Oregon. (But my toes are warm -- and it is a pretty good tradeoff!!!)

We have robins year round here. I miss mockingbirds from California.
