Spring in January!


It is 77 degrees here in Virginia today! Yesterday it was almost as warm. The Writer saw a few robins. And she found this robin's nest in the pear tree. It has some ribbon woven in it and there is a separate "nestlet" built on the side, like a mother-in-law apartment. Isn't it the sweetest thing? Winchester, did you ever wonder how birds weave nests with only their beaks and feet?

It's not that hard. I've done it myself.

In Maine it was 60 degrees! Unbelievable!

Robins? Hmmmmm - nope. None here yet. I think the snow might be scaring them away still.
