Bird Brain

I saw the first robin of spring today. It’s January 11th.

Apparently Mr. Robin got his signals a little crossed about this small heat wave we’re experiencing up here in the slowly-unfreezing-but-sure-to-refreeze North.

This poor little guy is going to experience either a long, embarrassing trip back to where the rest of his wiser buddies stayed, or a long, shivering winter shoved in a tree and hopefully finding a friendly squirrel to cuddle up next to.


  1. awwww poor little guy! why do birds and chickens in distress always seem to find you? Maybe you're a bird-whisperer and don't even know it!

  2. Aww, bring him some warm tea and a scarf.

  3. ...maybe bring him some hotdogs and garbanzo beans....

  4. Haha! Oh Charlie the chicken, he was a good chicken....and for those who don't know, he was a girl. It took me SO long to find what food he liked to eat.

    I miss him... I think I need a chicken.

    I wonder if the box we made him is still under the deck??? Haha!

  5. I think you need a chicken too, Linds! Logan won't mind!!! I mean you've already done all the research to find out what chickens like best to eat. What a lucky chicken Charlie was....I bet there isn't another chicken alive served such a delicious and diverse buffet!

    I think a bunny is living in Charlie's old box under the deck....


  6. aww...i miss charlie. maybe i'll dedicate a whole post to him sometime. how he changed our lives...
