We saw robins in north George a couple of weeks ago. We've had them here in our yard, of course. The chickadees and titmice are starting to sing. My birding friend said the cardinals near her house are starting to sing. I think they're just a tad early, but.....

I love robins! So wonderful that yours are being well fed! We have always had lots of robins here in early spring and I love to see them return. The last couple of years we've had even more than usual which I take to mean the worms are even more plentiful. As many here know I do trench composting which I believe greatly increases the number of worms.
Hope they don't arrive here for awhile as we still have lots of snow.

Yep! Mine were back for the third day this morning, but they left this afternoon...so we shall see if they drop in again or not. I also had a blue bird checking out one of the blue bird houses this morning...in/out, in/out. Maybe he was trying to get a female to come approve of it??? DH said that he saw the pileated woodpeckers chasing to...the males after the females...and they are calling to each other.

Because we've been outside so much the last few days, I've noticed lots of birdy activity. The chickadees are doing their dance routines, the male cardinals are feeding the females and calling all over, the titmice are calling all over. Blue birds in and out of the house here, too, Karen. Goldfinches are getting color as they pass through.
My hydranges actually has leaf buds coming out!! It's in a protected corner, though, so that may be the reason.
Oh, I see a pair of carolina wrens flitting around a bush out back right now. Wonder if they're looking for a nest spot. I'll go check it out later.
