Watched By A Robin
American robins like to dig around in wet grass looking for what I would guess to be worms. Since it's been raining for the past few days around here, the worms have been coming to the surface, giving the robins a feast of epic proportions. As you can see by the picture above, this robin hasn't missed any meals in quite some time.
Another thing you can see is that the robin was looking right at me when I took this photo. These are very brave little birds. They don't mind humans very much at all. As long as we keep at least a few feet away, a robin will go about his business as if we aren't even there. Even if we scare them away they don't feel the need to go very far.
Many of you know that I share a lot of pictures of robins, but this is the very best one I've shared of a robin on the ground. I'm not sure I can top this one. Well, maybe if I get one to spread his wings for me one day. That would really be something, wouldn't it? Spread your wings little robin!
One last note. I mentioned several months back that I had an exciting new project in the works. It's almost ready! This is something I hope will benefit all of us nature lovers here on the internet. I will have a big announcement at the end of this month!
