Default Who likes robins?

We have them the year round so I get to take a few pics in all seasons, this from last winter.

I think they really stand out quite well in the snow. Don't see that too often.

I think robins are great in the garden. Every year a few are raised in our garden. They are so much fun watching the parents and young ones together. They really do have personality. Nice photo!

In all my years I have never seen a robin and snow. The two look strangely out of place to me.

Robins are our harbingers of spring.

We have a little snow most years so I save berries from the fall, freeze them and put them out later in the winter.

My father would get dive bombed by robins were time he wore a certain hat around the birds. I think it was red.

Red is an invigorating color.

These are from last February so, though you can"t see it, there is undoubtedly snow on the ground. Even during our harshest winters we have some year-round robins.
