A Second Look--March 26, 2014

Where I live, there are a few robins that hang around all winter. However, I still get excited when I see a flock of them for the first time in the spring. When I was a kid, spring wasn't officially here until the first robin arrived. Well, it's here! The robins are out in full force. While watching them this week, I saw a robin tugging a worm out of the ground. Now that's a picture I've seen everywhere--in cartoons, greeting cards, books, and now I've seen it for myself after all of these years. It's was an exciting moment. (Sometimes, it's the little things. :) ) Also, there are a few more crocuses blooming and guess what? We had more snow.

Here's what I saw this week during my Second Look.

This was one of many robins that were visiting. It was a windy day, so notice the ruffled feathers.

A few more crocuses have been popping up here and there.

This crocus came up in the middle of the grass where a squirrel had planted it.


One foggy morning, I saw these deer grooming each other. Usually, I just see them eating.

This tufted titmouse has its tuft down.

We got a few more inches of snow yesterday.
