announcing Spring it is also the commonest
of birds in the summer. I must have taken
hundreds of pictures of them this year.
While visiting my daughter in June I saw
a Robin attend her young at Wildwood
Park. The nest built on top of a rain
spout at the Nature Center.
I 'caught' the common Robin and her mate doing
the wild thing! A first for me. It took 3 seconds so
I was lucky to have had the camera in hand
and turned on at half decent settings.
She was gathering nesting material while he is not far away.
(Seen in the background) when the 'event' happened
And before you could say 'Robin' this baby was so big you
could no longer see the nest or his siblings.
Another Robin happening... I was at a jewelry party
hosted by a friend on her back deck when I saw a Robin
fly into an artificial geranium.
in the flower basket and sent it to the hostess.
a bath is one of them! I found this poem on
the 'Children's bird day' Site. enjoy!
A flash and flicker of dripping wings,
A wet red breast that glows
Bright as the newly opened bud
The first red poppy shows,
A sparkle of flying rainbow drops,
A glint of golden sun
On ruffled feathers, a snatch of song,
To God be The Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done
