Day 75 > Spring's Messenger

For many people, the sighting of an American Robin is the surest sign that Spring is on the way.
I spotted my first pair in a backyard tree yesterday and today I found the forest at the Barkhausen Wildfowl Preserve was absolutely filled with Robins.
Winter weather in Wisconsin can be expected to last into April but seeing and hearing these birds again gives me hope that the snow and cold will soon be gone for good.

  1. My favorite harbinger of spring! The Victory Gardens attract dozens and dozens of varieties of birds, and yet the "ordinary" robins never lost their charm for me. I love how bold they can be, while maintaining their sweet disposition.
