more about the robins…

Will you believe me when I say how much the number of robins out there excites me…this morning again, even in the snowy rain, they sit in the highest of bare branches. Some fly across to the junipers, their dark needled limbs jumping with busy inhabitants.

fourteen birds sit high

her binoculars see red

snow shrinking below

where she celebrates each sign

those round robins may bear young

  1. Janice, your post is so delightful. Of course we believe you. I kept watching the Robins this morning too. They are fun, beautiful and yes,
    maybe some already are ready to lay eggs.:))
    Your poem takes in your excuberance beautifully.

    1. Thanks Jane…I haven’t heard sounds yet…last year there was a lot of calling in spring (after melt) when I went to the garden…it felt like they were guarding nests.


      1. They are quite different…they ‘holler’ for sure…I’ll have to look up recordings of their different kinds of calls and other sounds when I get a chance
