Robins 1/10/14

Flashback 2012 – American robin, turdus migratorius, sitting on a maple tree on Tuesday January 10.

This is my pick photo for today and it stars clear skies that show off mountains, trees, blue sky and pretty clouds. The winds from the up and coming storm front got rid of the nasty air pollution we have been breathing for a long time now (since the last storm). Many are happy, especially businesses that rely on Utah’s famous snow to keep food on the table, not to mention everyone who loves winter sports and fun!

and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn and he names the sky his own.”~Maya Angelou, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

Friday – Today after last night’s snow the robins sit in trees to feast on Russian olives and other fruit close to the place where I am temporarily employed.

It reminded me of this video I had seen.
