Robbin’ Robin, Tweet, Tweet, Tweet

Someone has been robbin’ my robin song, so I’m stuck with this depressing one:

“Listen to my bluebird laugh.  She can’t tell you why.

Deep within her heart, you see, she knows only crying.  Just crying.

There she sits, aloft at perch.  Strangest color blue.

Flying is forgotten now.  Thinks only of you.  Just you.  Oh yeah…”

Groovy.  I get to sing the blues–me with the best duds in the group.

  1. Oh, the drama! A real reality show soap opera. (those trained birds just love you!)

  2. I like those hoppin’ robins. : D Ours are not singing as much, as they’ve been busy raising the young. OH and for some reason our Bobolinks sounded extra joyful this morning. Could there be baby Bobolinks??? If I wasn’t so afraid of ticks, I’d be out in the pasture traipsing about looking for all the bird nests in there.

    • This robin was by a mountain lake we went to yesterday. He had a steady diet of some kind of grub or wormy thing at the shoreline. He was also very bold, coming toward me rather than flying away.

      • Robins are a tame bird, for sure. About your comment below, no, birds cannot get rabies. I had looked that up earlier this spring for some reason.

        • We had another little guy that looked like a miniature chick-a-dee–not sure what it was. But he all but took the sandwiches out of our hands. I think they are used to people being there and leaving food scraps, so they get bolder.

    What a handsome guy! And he looks like he wants to sing to you or talk to you. You are a very perceptive photographer! 🙂

    I love your pics, your birds are much more colourful cousins of ours. I nominated your blog for the versatile blog award as really enjoy your posts and seeing what is landing on your fence lately!

    Nice photos of the birdies, love those birdies of all kinds. Once lived in a place where every day after a long run, would stop & sit in a little park. A Mockingbird would sit next to me & hop onto my hand while we both gazed at the lake & relaxed. This happened every summer for several years…

I would love to hear from you!
