Bird in Spring


I have a Bird in spring
Which for myself doth sing --
The spring decoys.
And as the summer nears --
And as the Rose appears,
Robin is gone.

Yet do I not repine
Knowing that Bird of mine
Though flown --
Learneth beyond the sea
Melody new for me
And will return.
 
by Emily Dickinson 
 
The birds are singing every morning outside my door!

What an expression on that bird's face. LOL!

We have had a few resident robins that stayed around all winter. I don't know where they found food as they are not really seed eaters. They like ground worms or what we call fish worms when they can find them. I also discovered they would eat suet that fell after other birds pecked at hanging suet cakes. I saw three males here yesterday when it was raining.

Looks like the bird wanted to make sure you got his good side.

Abe, I wasn't sure if this was a robin or another kind of bird. But we have had lots of red-breasted robins lately.
