March 21 I heard my first robin. He was just in the edge of the woods near the creek, making it know to all others that he was claiming his "territory". Finally laid eyes on him that weekend, as I diligently watched for him and followed his voice.
Now I say "him" only for the fact that the majority of robins that have come this far north are most likely males of the species. They arrive first usually, 2-3 weeks ahead of the females, to stake out squatter's rights for an ideal nesting area. The male robin wants all to be ready and attractive so that when the females arrive he can hopefully attract many interested partners. Let me tell you, I've seen fights between the males and they are wicked brutal, yikes! But it's all what mother nature has instilled in them to promote the species and truly the fittest/strongest can and does apply.
I'm so happy to hear the robins again, very nice sound indeed.

Tally, Good Morning-

There's an old superstition>

If you see a robin outside your front
door, it's the sign of a forthcoming death!

Did you ever hear that?

don't know whether or not it's only
an Irish superstition.

The robin redbreast is a bird of Spring, a time of new growth and new beginnings. It flies into our lives on the winds of change asking us to weed our personal gardens and plant new seeds for our future. Rebirth and renewal require changes in all areas of life that have become stagnant and outdated. The robin redbreast teaches us how to make these changes with joy in our hearts. Its song is a happy one reminding us to let go of our personal drama and learn to laugh with life. If this doctrine is not adhered to those rejecting change are continually challenged. Difficulties arise and emotional discord can surface. Learning how to release our attachments to the old is one of the life lessons the redbreast helps us master.

My grandmother used to say that a sparrow or any wild bird caught in the house foretold the same.

PS: "After thought"
The robin gives *=* Turning over a new leaf *=* a whole new meaning.
Just watch one if you disagree with me.
Then there's the 'chicken'- It scratches all the leaves behind it and looks for new possibilities.
Nature is 1 of God's best teachers.
