I know we are very close to spring now. The weather has been "bi-polar" to say the least, when you see those robins with their chests more and more vibrant red, and expanding like balloons, you know there are eggs soon to be laid. Robins are the first to lay eggs very early in the spring, and they lay another clutch later. The other new visitor to the yard, is a Red winged Black bird. At first I wasn't sure what it was, until I saw the give away yellow and red bands on the wings. Hopefully it will visit again, so I can get a better picture.
