Flight Layover

This post is for Linda.
She's in Canada, straight north of me here in Ohio.
This week she mentioned there was a Robin in her yard.


I jokingly replied that next we'd see him in my yard as he made his way south for the winter!



Well, yesterday he arrived!
And brought 5 other robins with him!
He ate crab apples and posed for a photo shoot
before getting on his way.

  6. Going where it is hot
    I like that idea a lot
    Avoid the crappy snow
    Get a snack and off they go
    I wonder if their passport was in order
    Had to be since they got across the border haha

    1. haha...Wonder if the TSA frisked him down
      and searched his bags, making him frown.
      Probably on his way to Florida
      or further south to visit Gloria!
      lol....

    2. haha all are monitoring his trip
      Be funny if on Gloria's radar he gave a blip
      Those TSA folks are rather handsy
      I'm sure they frisked him and stole his umm pansy

    3. Handsy yes, so I've heard
      I think it's all rather absurd.
      A robin, though, could poop on their head
      and at least cause them a little dread.
      ha.

    4. LOL that would be great
      The cat would add a pringle can to their fate
      It is you guys too
      Who get all handsy at your zoo
      The canadians don't care
      When you come back to your lair haha

  7. They are wonderful shots. I remember seeing robins in the past when the hit trees with small fruit. They love to eat in groups.

    1. Yes, it's always more fun to travel in a group, I guess! Not many bugs left to eat so they're eating the fruits!

  8. I hope they don't layover too long.

  15. Well there are thousands more on there way. They gorged themselves on our blackberries. You should also be seeing Grackles, Starlings and Redwing blackbirds in the thousands shortly. Oh and raptors too!

  16. Lovely photos Betsy,we have ronins in our garden and cheeky little things they are. My 2nd grandson is called Robin! We do garden watch here for BBC Tv which entails sitting out in the cold noting every bird that visits your garden! Gardens are very important to a lot of species here now for food etc, love Angela
