Two robins, part of flock of approximately 20
I'd tell you the robins are back so it must be spring...except I don't think they ever left. I read an article recently that said many robins spend the winter in woodsy areas where they have discovered berries and other food to sustain them throughout the season. If we see them, they have probably run out of food. This flock was at the side of the road kicking up leaves and scratching in the dirt looking for something tasty. When these two saw me they decided to "hide" amongst some weeds.
Dressed for the weather
This is definitely not shorts and sandals weather! The trick to enjoying winter - at least for me - is wearing warm clothes: mittens, boots, coat, layers, scarf, hat....
