|FIRST ROBIN OF SPRING: A DAY LATE|
Joan and I had been planning to leave for Madison this morning for an Urban Forestry Council meeting but I received a phone call late yesterday afternoon cancelling it because of predicted bad weather across the southern half of the state. Storms often go south of Lake Superior, and weather can be greatly different from north to south in Wisconsin.
I saw my first robin of the season yesterday afternoon, eating crabapples in the tree on the south side of the house. I'm sure he would prefer worms but they are still too deep to extract from the ground.
He was a day late. I wonder if he was also a dollar short,
