Bringing Cheer

During this difficult time, the reappearance of the American Robin in my yard is a rejuvenating and stabilizing sight.

American Robins are known to run a few steps, then stop abruptly, both to listen for danger and watch for worm movement in the ground.
Robins usually hop through tall grasses; this robin is hopping through the last of the snow.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  3. What a cheering presence the robins must be. I hope that they will be nesting with you again this year.

    1. Thanks! Honestly, they were such a nice sight to see. They do hang around all Summer. Looking forward to May, when the robins are joined by the catbirds, wrens, sparrows, hummingbirds, and orioles. I will especially appreciate them this year!

  4. I love robins, too. They have been singing for a couple of weeks, starting well before sunrise, and chattering until well past sunset.
    Wishing you more happy moments with robins and other birds, Julie.
    Best,
    Tanja
