Winter Weather Bluebirds and Spring

Leave a comment

Some time ago I wrote a post on how Robins and bluebirds always herald the arrival of spring in our area of the country. ( https://elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com/2008/03/07/robins-in-the-snow/ )

This winter has been a little harsher than most. We’ve had snow on the ground since before Thanksgiving and temps below zero. I think everyone is anxiously looking forward to those warm spring days. This year I won’t have the Robins and bluebirds as an indicator of just how close spring is. They didn’t leave. All winter I have seen my yard full of Robins and bluebirds. This is the only winter I can ever remember seeing bluebirds in the winter. I have seen the occasional Robin, but never seen so many of them all winter long. I have no idea why these little guys stuck around this winter, but I bet they’re looking forward to spring even more than we are.
