    Hey Sheltie Mom, how far north are you? I have been telling my husband I have seen robins along the road for the last few weeks at least maybe 3 when the red buds started to bloom. Wonder where the live over the winter. I miss seeing them they are only here passing through.

    I am in the Chicago burbs! I had a whole bunch of them in the back yard today. Looked like a bird convention!

    The robins in Pennsylvania no longer migrate out of state – they just go deep woods. And Blue Jays, want some – I’ll ship them down to ya. Around here, they are like dandelions, you see one, you see a hundred more a few feet away. They hog the birdfeeders. They are noisy and bold, but they are beautiful. Like mockingbirds, they can mimmick several other species too. They are the best guardian against hawks. They give off a special scream when a hawk is near and everything takes off and hides. Can’t wait for the hummingbirds to get back next month.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    We have blue Jays, mourning doves, finches and a very noisy cardinal that whistles for his bird seed every morning. Also an owl that insists on hooting down the fireplace chimney at night. I love the wildlift here.

    Oh my gosh before I get side tracked as I usually do got to tell you we had 2 of the biggest owls one summer roost on the neighbors roof (they looked to be 3 ft tall sitting.) My daughter was upstairs asleep directly across from the chimney a house away. She came sneeking into my room in the middle of the night and said there was a man outside her window (physicaly impossible and she was not that young) scared her to death. Hard to believe the robins don’t migrate in Penn.
    Wow I’m excited to hear they are back in Chicago area that means our winter is over here in northern Florida. Yay!!

    Kittymon they say that there are “Winter Robins” that do stay year round. They stay here into early November at the latest and come back by mid March. If there are winter Robins here I have never seen them, maybe there are in southern Illinois.

    Just read an article about robin migration. Said they are staying north more and more lately. I do see them all year, so I guess they know what they are talking about. Years ago the Canada Geese used to migrate. Now they stay all year long too. Guess it’s the “Global Warming”

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Faith I sent my daughter out to get the mail one day. She came back to the house screaming. You would think the devil was chasing her. It was the mournful cooo of the morning dove on the roof. It convinced her there were ghosts out.

  10. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    We have the geese too and although the gosling are the cutest things, the adults make such a mess in the yard. I wish we had hummingbirds but they just migrate thru like the indigo buntings. We have a hawk that comes too, everything gets so silent when he’s about.

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    Faith sounds like you had a pair of Great Horned Owls. They get really big. They need about 50 to 60 acres for their territory. Sounds like you live in a wooded area.

    We lived in a little farming community called Covington, Ohio. It is just 35 miles north of Dayton Ohio and directly west of Columbus Ohio 90 miles. (No where near Covington Kentucky and entirely different place and state.) We were close also to the Indiana line by maybe 65 or 70 miles. State route 48 and state route 36 run right down through it. The deer sometimes would walk down the street from the fields at the end of our street by the high school. Huge buck did that one night he walked right into the neighbors yard. One also shut himself in the laundry mat and the game warden had to anesthize him.

  13. Daisy Chick - Dawn
    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I love farming communities! Most people are sooooo nice and always willing to help or share a recipe. I love deer. We have them here too but not in our neighborhood. My niece went into labor on Saturday. Her husband hit one on the way to the hospital. My brother who was following them had to put it out of it’s misery. I felt so bad for the deer but glad my niece was okay and made my brother a grandpa. It was a girl too.

    DO you guys have coyotes? We do. One walked into a deli in downtown Chicago. and Cleared out the deli He made the evening news.

    We had a 28 ft camper permanently set up in Modoc Ind. when we lived in Ohio went there over weekends. That was some fun around the campfire. We enclosed that deck also in front of it so we could take the doxy’s up with us. We were only allowed 2 so son took care of the rest.
