FROM: HEARTLAND SMITH---

It was 4 below zero yesterday morning and 11 above this morning.  At least there was sunshine and so our back porch was warmed by the solar heat coming through the windows.  While we were sitting out there enjoying the pleasant  70 degree warmth we were surprised to see this robin hopping around the area.  Our backyard has snow more than a foot deep, Snow piles by the driveway are at least 4 feet high.  As you can see by the bird pix, right beside the back wall of the house for a foot or so, there is no snow and the robin was pecking away in that area apparently looking for bugs or something else that a bird might find tasty.  Whether this is a very early spring visitor or a robin that has spent a cold winter in Michigan, we really don’t know.  At any rate we were pleased to see this colorful visitor.

Yes, the white stuff on the right is snow!



This is the view from our living room window showing that there is still plenty
of snow in Birmingham.
