Longing for Southern Spring

Submitted by Christi

It is warming up a bit around here and I am really, really getting antsy for Spring! The other day, I was sitting in the car while my husband ran into a local store. While I was waiting, I noticed a lovely robin that landed on a winterberry tree and was having a feast. It reminded me of the robins we had on our back porch last year. I enjoyed them soooo much. In case you missed them, here are a few pics.

We went from this . . .

    I love robins! They get to singing so loudly and beautifully here in the summer sometimes. It’s music to my ears!

    What a neat post which helps us think spring is on the way. We have really pretty robins here in Texas as well.

    Love your robins with their RED breasts and isn’t it strange they have blue eggs?

    We don’t have Zartarain’s in OZ, but my hubby would love it I’m sure.

    Dont’ you just Love to watch those birds bringing up their little babies and then watch the fledglings leave the nest while you’re holding your breath??? I had a mama Robin build a nest in my Ivy Arbor and she stuffed “bling” (leftover strands of Christmas tree icicles left in the yard when dragged to the street curb) in her decor!!! How funny. thanks for the Red post.

    We have one bird’s nest at our back porch too but I never checked if there’s eggs.

    Oh, delightful! I love robins. In fact, I saw one about half an hour ago while driving Teen to school!

  13. Mary Says:

    The photo stream is wonderful, but the shot of the blue eggs in the nest is spectacular. I hope you are having a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday.

    What beautiful spring pictures! You got an “Aw” out of me. We are struggling with rain, freezing rain and snow all in one day here in Iowa. Thanks for the reminder it’s not cold everywhere!

    Robin’s eggs have such wonderful color! I am always amazed that they are so bright and colorful. Wouldn’t it be safer for the little guys if they were less noticeable? I wonder why they are this color!
