Robin Red Breast Fly South!

Thanks to El Nino, which influences weather patterns, our winter has been very mild up until this week. This afternoon I noticed many Robins in my backyard, an unusual sight for January. Robins have always been the harbingers of Spring- spotting that first Robin in April means Spring has arrived! I think this year many Robins hung around because of the warm weather, but now are in a bind as the cold weather moves in.

  1. I have a friend who has a lot of bird houses and feeders. We watch her birds and chronicle the ones who visit. I had truly not realized in Ohio, robin’s are hanging out more the past 5 years. I like to see other birds starting to gather like a rose colored grosbeak. Smiles, Robin ♡

  2. I love to see your robins, DM. I could chatter all day with them. The world seems to be turning around. Granny was astonished when she found Dandelons,Thistles, and a lot of Daisies outside 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 ❤

  3. As a member of the Conservation Committee with our boy scouts I learned a couple of years ago that Robins have stopped totally migrating. Even in the harshest winters some of them will stay behind. I will have to look into that I find it pretty interesting.
