55 To 15

Posted Tuesday, January 29, 2008, at 8:08 AM

Several Nebraskans have stated that if you don't like the weather, just wait and it will change pretty quickly. Yesterday at the farm the temperature was 55, this morning it's 15 and dropping. I liked the 55 better, so I hope those native Nebraskans are right about quick changes!

Yesterday we had a lifetime first. Since we've knocked down most of the weeds around the farm, birds have discovered there is a smorgasbord of tasty treats laying around on the ground. We did some town errands in the morning, and when we returned, the farm was alive with the sounds of thousands of the little winged creatures.

Now the sound of so many birds isn't really new to us, but the attack of the Robins was. We were barely in the house when well over 100 Robins found our yard and birdbath (our driveway). We've never seen so many Robins at a time like that, and with the nice weather the last couple days it does feel a bit like Spring so I shouldn't be surprised I suppose, but the sight of so many was what was amazing.

They didn't hang around long, and I figure we just happened to be at the right place at the right time, or Robins roam in packs around here.
