Chubby Little Robin

 

IMG_1057 Chubby Little Robin

 

I came across this Chubby Little Robin the other day at Presqu'ile Provincial Park. He looks like an American Robin and quite young. I was surprised to see it here, and by the looks of it I think he has been living off the local bird feeders. I am thinking he may have stayed the winter for some reason. Maybe he lost his way or was too young to make the trip further south. He was the only one I saw. I have to say he was a sight to see. Just maybe a sign that Spring is just around the corner. I for one sure hope so.

As I get ready to post  this many of you come to mind. I Hope to find you all well.   Sincerely Dianne  :)

  2. And I hope he is sign of spring as well. I have heard we have robins here, but I haven't seen them yet. Today was cold, snowy with wind gusts of 45mph. I hope they can survive until spring!

    1. It has been a very cold, winter, and I am really surprised that some of these robins seem to stay all winter. They must have learned to adapt to the colder weather. I guess as long as they have food they will be okay. I think they must also eat from feeders. I haven't seen any here but I have heard and now seen at least one in Prince Edward County. Nice to hear from you Anita. I am hoping to be able to do a post every once in awhile at least.

  4. What a wonderful surprise Dianne to see this little fellow. It has been awhile and glad to see you here again, look forward to your many sightings this Spring. Today I hear two Skylarks way up high . Every morning the Song Thrush also high in the tree tops , he is a much welcome visitor, lovely tones he belts out. I do hope this is a good sign also, for a lovely Spring.
    Hugs Sheila hope you are well and Healthy and happy. xx

  10. We haven't seen any robins here in Nebraska yet but the Sandhill Cranes are starting to arrive and that is one of our first signs of spring. So glad to see your post and a sign of spring too.
