Saw my first flock of robins this morning...  I saw geese flying north on Saturday.  I saw worms on the driveway last week.  It is starting to feel like spring even though I think there is still some winter lion left in March.

Snow on the way for Friday, next 10 days or so colder than it is has been but no deep freeze.

Funny about robins. Twice now over the past month we have had flocks of them in our yard on warm days digging worms. I was wondering if they may have gotten stranded earlier along the flyway somewhere and are just now still migrating or something. Usually they winter near my in-laws in Florida.

Hi Sk8man.... My neighbors and I have had robins winter here in Delaware County, NY . I read where other parts of new York are seeing more and more robins spend the winter too.

They eat berries and dried up fruit when they can't get worms.....if they have enough berries and worms to eat some will stay, if not they head south to where they can find enough food.

Hey choo-choo - Given the spread out nature of these sightings it looks as though the robins have copied the geese by sticking around NYS and taking their chances on finding food and I'll bet they are kicking themselves in the azz today with this weather:lol:

I've also seen my first roadkill skunk in the past week or so.  The skunks coming out of hibernation is always one of my key signs that winter is on its way out.
