Not much time this morning before we board our flight heading south to warmer weather. Hey, if spring isn’t going to come to me, then I am more than willing to go find IT !

So, here is another American Robin photo from my outing earlier in the week.

"Bing" (American Robin, Male) Nikon D300, 340mm (80-200mm w/1.7x teleconverter), F/9, 1/400s, ISO 500

Although this little guy appears to be quite full from gorging on all those ornamental cherries, he has actually puffed himself up in order to stay warm in the 20-degree temps.

Don’t you wish it were that simple for us?


  1. Can I call my winter weight “puffiness” in an attempt to keep warm?

  2. I’m feeling kinda puffy, too, these days…

  3. Those robins need to find a better travel agent. Like the one you got. LOL Enjoy your winter break!

  4. He’s georgous! Good idea to puff himself up to keep warm too, far easier than jogging on the spot LOL. I also escaped the cold for a bit, we enjoyed a bit of New Zealand summer at Christmas/New Year. the extra sunlight was also appreciated.
    It’s nice how the background colours of the berries compliment the colours of the bird. Well done.

    • Thank you, kiwidutch! I’m glad you were able to get away. We all need a break from the bitter cold!

  5. I like the warm tones here… perfect for today, since you’re flying to warmer weather 🙂

    • Thanks Michaela! Out in the WARM sunshine today has already done me some good!

  6. Aww, I loved the birdie. I really did. 🙂

  7. Bon voyage.
