I saw this guy in the driveway this morning as I headed to work.
It's the middle of November. I don't remember robins hanging around that long, although I'm sure it's just because I don't remember. He was attempting to drink out of an ice-covered puddle in the drive. The bird bath had a sheen of ice on it. The flowers I left out have been frost killed. I need to put the last deck chair away. And there is a robin still flitting about my yard.
The cardinals have become more active lately. There are two pair that call my yard home. With the change of seasons and the change of birds in the yard, they have become the noisy ones. I anticipate hearing the chickadees soon, too. And then I think, I really need to get a bird feeder up, when I know the seasons by the bird songs in the backyard.
Beverage: Rooibos tea
