A Gift of Robins

It is most definitely fall in Vermont and like much of the northeast we have had rain rain rain. Our part of the state was spared most of Irenes' wrath..but I miss the sun! Slow going with the garage construction means we have a muddy torn up mess of a lawn. Which it seems was a blessing to the birds! Expecting a temperature drop soon and that usually means that the birds stock up before they high tail it south! I woke to the sound of Robins this morning! They were dive bombing the yard..playing in the trees..hunting for breakfast in the fresh turned mud. Dozens and dozens of them..along with a few stray redwings and juncos. None of the promised sunshine today ...but true joy in watching and listening to these beautiful creatures! Happy Fall everyone! Fly safe birdies!


  1. What a nice thing to wake up to and the Robin is such a pretty bird too. Most mornings we wake up to the sound of parrots! It is raining at the moment and all the birds are in full voice - can't hear myself think! They tend to get so excited when it rains:o))
    Take care and have a good week.

  2. Vermont has such a short warm season that the summer birds are sorely missed when they leave! My sister in law had caged i can understand the racket part! But your country sure looks beautiful!
