A P.S. To Spring

It is highly unusual that I am posting so quickly again but I would be remiss if I ignored what I heard and saw this morning.
We have seen robins early than today .. when the warmer weather seemed to bring them in and made them some what happy with the promise ( a little premature I think ) of Spring.
This morning .. I heard some soulful sounds and a picture of what the cold and wind was doing to this particular one .. I felt so sorry for him.
I had to capture the moment though .. yes it really is a robin.

Maybe you could put out a little grape jelly for your robin. Poor thing is probably starving.I always feel so sorry for the ones that return so early that they succumb to the weathers. A beautiful photo though. Being that it is warmer here the Robins are mostly paired up. They are having big squabbles about territory.

Poor cold robin. Wishing you warmer days and lots more beautiful birdsong!

Hello Lisa girl ! Thank you about the photo .. it was a fluke that I captured it .. poor little guy .. we are in for more bad weather .. I am so sorry for the birds .. I don't know how they hang on here especially with this weird winter.

Peter .. you gem : ) thank you for stopping by ! I so wish Spring would hurry up but yet another winter storm on the horizon .. keep sending those wishes my way friend !

Diana girl I just hope this robin finds shelter for tonight and tomorrow .. it is going to be rough with the weather .. no Spring or even a clue of it !

Thank you Carrie dear .. I was so happy to catch it .. more winter weather coming though sadly. BIG sigh !

Jennifer girl how funny is that .. Garden PA just told me this morning about the big storm coming .. not funny at all eh ? where is Spring ? .. I hope all the birds can find some shelter .. this is stretching out way too long !

Very beautiful Joy...spring seems so elusive for all of us in Canada this year...especially the Robins. My heart goes out to them, and all of the shivering birds.
