All Aboard

The bird population increased exponentially in our neighborhood, seemingly overnight, since the mercury hit 60F a few days ago. PR says he thinks they all hopped the same train north.

But this morning when we headed out for our jog, the thermometer was frozen at 28F. There was Robin Redbreast perched on the roof, puffed up to three times his normal size; feathers pointing in all directions.

I think he was contemplating the quickest route to Union Station.

    It was on the chilly side here too. The mercury hardly made it above 70d F. ;-)

    Two weeks ago everytime I looked out the widow I could see a robin hunting for breakfast however I just realized I haven't seen one for a few days now. Where did they all move off too?

    A whole herd of bird passed through our yard Saturday; they were headed north. That's a good sign isn't it.

    Brrr...jogging in that temperature? I hope you were on your way to the gym to do that!

    I like watching those little feathered friends.
    That reminds me, we need to get a new hummingbird-feeder. There are no "hummers" in the Neverlands, so it's very special for me to see them for real:-)

    God's Grace.
