Cheer-up, cheer-up! My garden workers are returning!
garden birds (Hortus Aves)
And what a fine, fat fellow he is! Looks like he overwintered very well. It’s so exciting when our friends return.
Yes he IS fat, isn’t he. I was very excited to see him on my “lawn”.
Many robins over winter in our area, and maybe he did, but they’ve been hanging out in flocks in the trees until now. This guy seems to be on his own (staking out his territory?) and listening for worms.
what a plump, robust little bird he is! and so adorable! in my back yard i found 2 bluejays yesterday. i love the harbingers of spring.-alec, at http://www.gardeningmisadventures.blogpspot.com
The funny thing was, he stayed in one place for a long time. 15 minutes. Listening for worms maybe? Watching me and my camera? as I was watching him/…..
A true sign of spring! I’m happy to see the robins have returned to southern Ontario, too.
Thank you for posting this photo! I posted one of a British robin a while ago and I was giggling at the fact that Julie Andrews had an American robin on her finger in ‘Mary Poppins’.. in the middle of London! tee hee! They are both beautiful!
Hi Matron, I went right away to look at your robin as I am unfamiliar with European robins. A very cute bird. I had to look then up on Wikipedia, which says they are related more to flycatchers rather than our thrush family robins. Thanks!
Here’s the link to Matron’s cute little robin.
