Robins in the garden

This robin was enjoying a romp in the mulch looking for worms

There are lots of robins in neighborhood, and we are seeing lots of young, still growing birds in the yard. We have tilled up sod for our flower garden, and this freshly exposed soil has become a worm buffet for the robins and other birds.

Our bird feeder has really become a center of feathered activity. We are seeing an almost constant stream of birds feeding from the feeder. The larger birds, too big for the feeder’s small perches, are enjoying feeding on the ground where the seeds have fallen from the feeder. We daily see cardinals, starlings,  doves and the occasional Blue Jay. We saw a red headed woodpecker one day hanging from the bottom of the feeder. I was surprised to see a woodpecker on the seed feeder.

Don’t jump the gun as businesses start to open up again. Remember to follow the guidelines: masks, distancing, sanitizers and hand washing. Be safe and stay healthy!

  1. Robins are always so engaging.

    “Don’t jump the gun as businesses start to open up again. Remember to follow the guidelines: masks, distancing, sanitizers and hand washing. Be safe and stay healthy!” Amen.

    Like I expressed to my office. Just because they (government or other) say we can go back to the office, doesn’t mean I’m going to. That’s my decision to make, and as well yours for you. I have no lost productivity at home, in fact I’ve actually streamlined. I project working from home until at late December 2020, which then translates into Jan ‘21. Wave 2 hasn’t come yet, and there’s NO way I’m upheaving again to take my whole office system back to the office, and then 2-3 weeks later in early June, see another shutdown where I have to come back here. I’m too busy to waste those 3 days. And, my friends, that’s a good problem to have, as many don’t have.

    It reminds me of Mark Twain in regard to patriotism. “I’m a patriot 100% of the time, behind my country always. And, I support the government only when it deserves it.” 🙂
