Today’s post features the harbinger of spring, The American Robin. The Robin is usually associated with the start of spring maybe because they are one of the first species to start laying their eggs [Wikipedia]. However, in the Lower Mainland they seem to be pretty common all through the year. The picture above is the Robin we spotted while at Deer Lake in January, while the picture below was taken at Reifel last November.
One of my favorite pictures of the Robin is the picture below, from last spring. Looks like someone had a hungry family. Hard to believe he could carry so much in his beak.
