It's Spring

To me, a robin is a symbol of spring. Spotting the first robin is a sure-fire sign that spring has arrived. They have made their way to Casselman. Their chirpy songs can be heard as they settle in to their northern homes. They can be spotted on many lawns, checking out the dry grass for newly uncovered sources of food. It's spring!

  1. I would love to hear the robin sing. We can hear our tuis singing when we walk near our native trees. There is few sounds so beautiful.

  2. Yes, robins definitely say spring. When I saw this pic I thought of the song, "Robin in the rain". Did you think of possibly cropping this pic? A closer look could be interesting.

  3. How lovely, great capture of the bird! I've been off the commenting radar too long, so spring has reached you in the meantime. Enjoy it! We still have some way to go...

  5. I'm glad for you, Susan, since we had 14" of snow overnight. (It was good skiing!)
