    Was outside cleaning up after dogs last night, heard that beautiful song! Looked up and thankfully the trees are bare so that firs Robin was easy to spot.

    Ahhh ... this has been a much awaited Spring.

    I saw ONE robin yesterday here in SW Missouri. My DD in Paducah KY saw hundreds of them in her back yard/pine trees a couple of weeks ago! My DH saw a huge flock of white geese flying north about a week ago!

    I have a Robin too, but not the kind you are looking at. Mine is 32. I use to call her Robin Bird as a child, and she hated it . lol

    Lucky You!
    So far we only have sparrows and starlings, but the cat outside has decided they are good for him to practice his hunting skills.

    Well they won't be splashing in water now!! It's still cold in NE Ia. But thanks for the heads up. And blue birds in Cashton--spring just may come after all!

    I had robins about three weeks ago with two feet of snow on the ground. They were in the sumac bushes eating the berries. Then the same day I saw a blue bird. We usually do have the blue birds come early, but not the robins that early.

    I saw a flock of robins about two weeks ago and saw a bluebird last week. I know we have bluebirds in this area, but last week was only the third time in the 21 years I have lived in this house that I saw them.

    I also see my crocus coming up. They're usually in blossom at the end of February because they're in a protected area against the house, but we had way too much snow and cold this year.

    C'mon spring, I'm ready! :lol:

    My DH just read where robins are beginning to winter over in many northern states as far north as Alaska! What is going on? We had a pair here all winter too - in Missouri!

    We had our first robbins arrive last Sunday. We have had no snow this winter and everything is very, very dry. I also had a large crow in my maple tree outside the kitchen window last night. Spring is coming to northern Colorado.

    The Bradford Pear trees are all blooming here, also daffodils, and I know I will spell it wrong the forsitheyia, little yellow flowers on a bush.

    I don't want to burst anyone's bubble but we have had robins all winter here in Kentucky. There are a few areas in the United States that do not have robins all year, but for the most part they do not migrate. This is a link to a migration map for American Robins:

    I live on Long Island in New York and saw a Robin about two days ago. He was feasting on worm in my back yard.
    As you can see from the migration map provided by Aurora- The Robins do go away from here for the winter.

    Here comes the sun!!!!!! La la la la
    Here comes the sun
    And I say
    It's all right

    I had a yard full a week or so ago. They sure did look pretty. Had a big fat one of the patio yesterday. He must have wintered good somewhere.

    Haven't seen any here yet, which is a bit unusual. They usually appear just before we get a batch of snow and cold wave, again so they can get their little behinds frozen. Did see a gaggle of geese fly over yesterday. We'll get something this week because it's girl's state basketball. It rarely fails.
