'nothin but blue skies'

caveat: all I do is complain about the weather. It appears that we have two choices here in the Twin Cities: cold and clear blue skies or warm[er], foggy and gray.

So, today dawned in the first category and I was itching to take a long walk along the lake. On my way home I heard familiar Robin sounds right above me. He was basking in the sun so didn't mind me taking his photo. Oh joy! Is there a more beautiful sound than bird song in the dead of winter?

Beautiful shot Noni - it makes your heart sing to see such a lovely day. (The sun is shining in a blue, blue sky today, too:-))

Wonderful picture. Robins are spring birds here and I love when I first start seeing them. By the end of the summer I am fed up with them.

Beautiful bird in a beautiful blue sky, Noni !

Your description of winter is all to familiar to us here in Wisconsin. Such a pretty and rare winter capture of a very optimistic(!) Robin :-)

Beautiful! Such a sharp contrast to the birds we see in South Florida this time of year! Pictures like that warm the soul!
