We are having a strange winter here. Subzero one day and quite balmy the next. And there are robins everywhere! So much for knowing when it is spring........ If I have my camera out, I will try to catch some of these birds.
The following is from wikipedia.
While Robins occasionally overwinter in the northern part of the United States and southern Canada,[11] most migrate to winter south of Canada from Florida and the Gulf Coast to central Mexico, as well as along the Pacific Coast.[13] Most depart south by the end of August and begin to return north in February and March (exact dates vary with latitude and climate).

I know occasionally the robins will stay here along the river's edge, but I have not seen more than one or two. I've seen LOTS in the past week.

We have not had an official January thaw this year, and looking at the weather for the next week, we will not have one. -1F tonight, 21F to 3F Sunday, and so on. The 1st and 2nd of February look promising for shearing though. 34F Sunday and 37F Monday. The girls need to be sheared soon if they are going to start delivering on the 14th.
