Yards full of Robins

Today was the day! When I went outside to water the front yard---violets and green grass, I looked up and saw neighbors yards full of robins... orange breasted robins. At sunset they perched in the bare oak trees for a while and sang. I hope they come back tomorrow---but they are migrating north now. I hope that gives our neighbors in the cold frozen north comfort to know that spring is on the way. It is rare to see a robin family stick around here all summer. It is just too hot. They prefer the northern states.

Eighty-five degrees predicted for tomorrow. Time to give the AC a workout. Temps will hit thirty-four Saturday night yet, so we will use the furnace yet.
