A Robin sighting for Ruby Tuesday.



"Was out shovelling snow and the robin made a guest appearance in a nearby tree. February 7,2011"(Roger in Aidrie, Alberta)

My guest photographer, Roger . has done it again! He's taken a photo of a surprising bird sighting at his home location. What sight could be more heartening than seeing a Robin while shovelling snow?


Robins are red, winter skies are blue.

This picture makes me think of spring!

How about you?


Please send a few down our way, Roger. We are in the midst of another snowfall this morning and we had just gotten our driveway plowed out yesterday from our last recent snowfall, and we need an encouraging sign of spring!

Happy to see the robin. May more come your way. Sounds like you've had more than enough of snow.

There are some areas of North America that need all the robin sightings they can get!


A DAMSEL WHO LOVED SHADES OF RED

A damsel who loved shades of red
Discovered she’d been sore misled;
She had no more rose,
Nor blush for her nose—
If she finds the thief, the guy’s dead!

Interesting, I wrote about robins today, too. It seems like they are really out this week.

I just took a shot of a robin--it was sliding around on a frozen pond. Spring, hopefully, is right around the corner. Love the quilts!! Mickie

Lovely shot! We have had robins around all winter this year. Surprising as this is a first in the 20 years we have lived here. We had snow this morning, but only an inch if that.

A red breast on bleak winter's day is always nice to see!

I'm seeing lots of robins here and hope we are done with snow for good!
