I thought I saw some last week but didn't believe it, I think that officially spring is around 50 days away. Close but not yet. :(

Well it's almost February. We typically will start to spot them the first week or so of February. They must go by the calendar rather than the thermometer.

I gave up trusting Robins as a sign of early Spring two years ago, in January, along a bike/walking path in Saratoga Springs.

While out for a walk, I saw a flock of Robins pecking around at the few small patches of ground not covered by snow.

Yup, silly birds !
