      Oops, I totally forgot to check for comments until…guess what? I saw a robin again today, for the second in as many days. 🙂

    It’s funny how prized a bird can be based on its local rarity. For me, a bald eagle is still a rare treat, but I know there are places they’ve become common.
    A Steller’s jay was a bird I long wanted to see, and finally did, and then realized that where they flourish they are considered pests.
    We have robins galore here, so I’ve never thought of them as a bird to hope and wait for, but you’ve opened my eyes.

      MY nana used to say: “In the darkest days of winter, look to the skies and listen for the robins…”

      And guess what? For the second in as many days, a robin perched on my back fence. They’re not common here, so I feel incredibly lucky.
