A sure sign of spring is the return of the robins. We began to notice them about a week ago and now they seem to be everywhere.

They spend winters in roots from just below Canada south to Florida. This disappearing act has given rise to the idea that they fly south for the winter.

We don’t see them at the feeders but that does not mean they don’t stop by.

It seems like the pickens are slim for robins but it is not as bad as for some other species that eat only bugs. Robins can eat fruit to tide them over in the winter when it would be a real trick to coax an earthworm from the ground.
