Where do birds invest their money?
In the stork market!

Interesting Fact: Although robins are considered harbingers of spring, many American Robins spend the whole winter in their breeding range. But because they spend more time roosting in trees and less time in your yard, you’re much less likely to see them. The number of robins present in the northern parts of the range varies each year with the local conditions. ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/American_Robin/lifehistory )

  1. Where I live, in the western part of the United States (Utah now), we have always been taught that when we see a Robin in the yard, it is the first sign of Spring. I grew up loving Robins for this reason. Very nice post on this…as I have come to expect from all your posts!

    • Thank you very much for enjoying my work and sharing this awesome story. Now every time I see them I will think of spring. Yey! πŸ™‚

  2. Lately we’ve been seeing robins around here (New Jersey) in the winter. We thought they might be confused. Beautiful picture.

  3. When the Robins start showing up for nesting season to clam their territories, it coincides (usually!) with spring. In the winter I sometimes see Robins feeding on berries in flocks..so they are around, but not on their nesting territories or singing so they often seem absent. It’s always a surprise. πŸ™‚
