I like to mark on the calendar when I see the first robin of spring. And last Friday, there were robins in the front yard! And across the street there were a whole flock of them!
I got out my camera and started snapping them through the storm door. They were actually listening to the ground for worms and pulling them up!
It has been snowing all day, and is to snow Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. And later this week the actual temp will be -4. So I imagine they will all die. I have come to the conclusion that they do not return because of the weather, but because of programmed migration in their little brains.
Here is a little house finch who found a big seed in the snow today. I hope both finches and robins will survive!
robins, warblers, and bluebirds know when it’s time to come back
again. But my people? My people know nothing, not the first thing of God and his rule.
