THINK SPRING ???


This morning when I looked out of my window,
I was amazed at the amount of Robins I saw.





One frequently sees flocks of Crows and  Starlings 
but it seems unusual to see this many Robins at one time..








They sure are fat little birdies.
They must have had a good winter.




Maybe they should have waited a little while before joining us
.



It's hard not to "think spring" with them around
but I see an awful lot of ice and snow surrounding them...
and it's darn cold !!!! 





I hope your weekend will be toasty warm.
Ours promises below zero temps, 40 MPH winds 
and maybe more snow Sunday into Monday.....
Sure,  "Think Spring"!!! I dare you.

No doubt if the snow had been melted you might not have noticed the Robins. Does seem strange though to see so many Robins feeding together. I think they speak a language that says, "come on down, food here!"

I am not going to talk about the cold weather, minus zero, just not going to talk about how miserably cold it is, especially with the strong, wicked wind blowing . . . not going to mention it . . . not!

Those robins are chubby little guys indeed!

We usually see robins around now, but none so far. Too much snow for them! Glad to see yours though. "Think Spring?" I agree-- ha!

What lovely photos of the robins. Stay safe in these bitter winter conditions. Keep thinking spring! Have a good weekend, Missy.

I really am trying to do the sunshine dance to hurry up Spring! Burrrr, it looks really cold but those robins don't seem to mind. Stay warm and snuggle in, Hugs!!

OMGosh, Missy. I can't believe that you have robins already. We won't see any here until well into April. It's always a sign that Spring is here when we finally see them.

GREAT pictures. Hope you don't get hit too hard with that storm-we are getting hit here, too- ugh- xo Diana

Missy, your weather forecast sounds just like Indiana's. I love robins. They have a beautiful song. I always feel spring is near when they come . We'll have to wait a bit longer to get out like we want. Take care and stay safe. xoxo,Susie

Oh my it is so cold for those little robins. I am thinking spring! We are suppose to get up to 12 inches of snow tonight, and frigid temps tomorrow.
Thank you for following my blog 'With all my senses'. I am honored to have you follow along.
Hope your weekend is fantastic and warms up soon.

It seems you have had some snow!! Sweet little birds, waiting for spring temperatures!!

I think you're in good company with the weather you're having. It seems everyone I know is getting snow this weekend. It's cooler here today than I expected and has been cloudy all day. But, now snow! So, I'll take it. I think seeing robins is a sign of Spring too.

We have days here and there with lots of robins too. Then they just seem to disappear.

Missy, dear,

What beautiful birds.

Surely they also want more warm days.

We are here in São Paulo with 25 degrees ... very quiet.

Have a great day,

kisses,
