A birdie with a yellow bill
Hopped upon my window sill,
Cocked his shining eye and said:
“Ain’t you ‘shamed, you sleepy-head!”
– Robert Louis Stevenson
Just when I thought spring had arrived early, she surprised us with a snow storm. Inches of fluffy stuff hang on the branches like marshmallows. The birds flock to our feeders and water because the seed easily accessible.
This is the first robin I have ever seen come this close. She came for the water and returned with friends. I say she because today I learned to tell the difference between male and female robins. (Of course, the robins knew all along 🙂 )
