Signs Of Spring

Yesterday morning I tossed out some apples and oranges for the wildlife that visit my yard.
As the day wore along, I happened to look out the window and noticed one plump Robin Red Breast enjoying the feast that I had provided. He sampled the peel of an apple, orange, and on to another apple. He spent a very contented afternoon, looking around now and again for uninvited visitors.
This morning, a beautiful spring-like morning, with temperatures close to fifty degrees. (Three feet of snow still on the ground.) He returned! Spent the day enjoying the treats, all by himself, no intruders. Will he return tomorrow? I will keep you posted!
