What Do the Robins Know?

(Before It's News)

Yesterday Don and I started to take Lydia for her usual afternoon walk along the road, when suddenly he stopped and said, “Let’s take her in the pasture.”

When the cows are not in the pasture, we can just unleash Lydia and let her run loose to sniff, explore, chase, dig, or whatever. However that hasn’t been possible since early December when we started getting the snow dumps. It was too deep.

But the snow has been slowly but steadily melting off, so for the first time in 10 weeks, we gave it a try.

Needless to say, Lydia was thrilled by the freedom.

We usually walk the perimeter while the dog explored. The snow was deeper than we anticipated in some areas, so it was a good walk/workout for us as well.

As we walked, we noticed birds. Flocks of birds. In fact — robins!

These are the first robins we’ve seen this year, and suddenly they were everywhere … and I mean everywhere.

“I wonder if they know something we don’t know?” I mused.
