They are down the road, but waiting to spot one in the backyard! The American Robin was the most spotted bird in the Pacific Flyway during last year's Great Backyard Bird Count. Join us this year February
I remember lifting the window blind many cold mornings as a little girl living on Lake Erie, hopefully searching the limbs of the trees next to our bedroom window for a glimpse of a red-breasted robin with its promise that spring had arrived.

Robin's nest with eggs in a tree. Nothing makes me more excited than to discover a new bird's nest in or near the garden in the Springtime and to know that new chirping baby birds will soon be on their way.
