In the old days, when you would spot an American Robin it meant that Spring was finally here. I remember the local newspaper reporting the first sighting of a robin on the front page. These days, the robins never leave, they are here year round. Unfortunately for this bird it is -9F right now with the wind chill. He seems content on feeding on the Hawthorne berries but next year he will be heading a bit further South for warmer weather.
