    I was standing at the kitchen sink cleaning up after making mayhaw jelly and I looked out of my window and there was robin in my bird bath. Then another robin. Oh my, maybe spring is right around the corner. Yea. As I stood there for about 5-10 minutes looking out while cleaning up, I saw a couple of blue jays, purple finch, sparrows, titmouse, and a mockingbird. I will say that today is the first mild day (south Louisiana) that we have had in a couple of weeks. What a pleasant sight.

    I can't wait to see my first robin here in Iowa. I think I may have a long wait though.

    I agree, I think Winter will be here for a while. We enjoy birdwatching too. Where are you located littlehud?

    I love to watch birds too! We have a bird bath right off our patio, have a sliding glass door, we have had 2 inches of slow rain today, and ALL the birds have been on a feeding frenzy! Same kinds you mentioned, except I have yet to see robins where I am now..but, the cardinals and bluejays, dove, titmouse, wrens and hummingbirds are going crazy! I threw out some lint from the dryer the other day, it was so cold, and they like to make nests with it...happy bird watching! It is so entertaining at breakfast!

    Robins will be a few months away for us as well.
