I keep hearing and seeing flocks of American Robins at Circle B, and today I heard them flying over our house, too. It seems like the birds fly very high in the fall, so you don’t really see them and you’re lucky to hear them. In the springtime they seem to come down a little closer, and then finally flocks will cover our oak tree and spread berries all over the yard. So seeing them today makes me realize we’re getting closer to spring. Isn’t it funny how it feels cold enough to seem like “the middle of winter”, yet the birds are already starting springtime migration and nesting?
