Sorry Couldn’t Find A Robin to Photograph Yet, But Still Plenty of Feathered Activity in My Backyard.
I was hoping, with the warm temperatures and rapidly melting snow, to spot a robin today. I thought I heard one singing in the distance on my walk this morning. I took my camera and set out to find one after work but no luck today. My dad and my brothers Mike and Joe would have a contest to see who spotted the first one. My dad usually won. I am sure they will be here by the weekend. Can’t wait ti awaken to their singing in the mornings.
Couldn’t find a robin so decided to photograph the birds visiting my feeders. There wasn’t as many as usual, but still able to get some photos of some nuthatches, black-capped chickadees and a finch. Won’t be long until the robins, and other song birds return to my backyard. So looking forward to it, it’s been a long, cold snowy winter in these parts. So glad it’s just about over. Here is the link to some more photos I took at my feeder tonight. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/birdfeeder-march-11-2015#gallery/d2d52ccfb96d98f0426d471570e7954a/1004
