Saturday Critters ~ 121 ~

Our Robin Red Breasts came back early this year!!
They vacation during the winter and return in Spring.

I took this picture on February 18th, there were hundreds in the trees in my backyard,


and hopping about in the yard!!


That was the first day I saw them and their return seemed a bit early,


now they have settled in and are starting to build their nests.
This robin has a little bit of grass in it's beak.
Now they are here to stay and are a common sight among my other birds.

  3. Nice colourful photos Debbie. I see the robins here but it still cold. -4 °C, 25 °F right now. In fact yesterday I saw a robin eating a wormsicle.

  4. I've always liked robins but have never seen so many in a tree like that!
    When I see them it's always just one (or two) as they may come near when in the garden or out walking.

    Have a lovely weekend

    All the best Jan

  7. Hello Debbie, your Robins shots are adorable. I have never found a robin's nest in my yard. I wish they were here. We did have some snow this morning, I hope it warms up soon. Great post and photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  11. This is the first year, I didn't see a single robin. I have wondered about it too.
    I think you took such pretty photos of them.

  16. Love these beautiful little robins! We have robins, but ours stay on the ground all the time. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen them in the trees. That is an amazing shot!

  19. How do you rate to get so many robins? Do they migrate up the coast or something?
