About the author jmankowsky

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. It’s great to see your Spring Fling, Julie. I love robins. And how fun to see the photos of the worm catch, and the busy robins in the video.

    1. Thanks, Jet. There have been a few robins staying all year, but this was quite a big flock, so I suspect they had just “flown in” recently!

    Lovely captures, Julie. The backgrounds of leaves and rocks is fantastic. Good work! 🙂

    1. Thanks, H.J. This was a “snow is all gone” shoot. However, 8-12 inches are on the way (or so they say).
      Cheers,
      Julie

  5. I love robins, I’ve had lots of them in my backyard recently as well, except they’re eating the holly berries in my trees. Maybe this evening they had worms for dinner. 🙂

    1. LOL! I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. My first time putting up a little “video”. Hmmm..where do I get my ideas from, I wonder?

  6. Such a welcome sight! I particularly like the photo of the robin on the rock. For us, the storm is all rain. I expect the same was true for you?

  9. I simply love robins–they always put me in a good mood. They are definitely ready for spring, having been singing for a few weeks. 🙂
