I saw my first robin of the year this morning. The weather has been pretty nasty here for the past few weeks, but maybe theres hope after all. :D

Been seeing Robins here in NW INdiana for about a week now. Another sure sign that spring is the return of Sandhill Cranes. We have been seeing large numbers of them flying over the house and feeding in corn fields since Saturday. About 25 miles south of here is Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area where the Sandhills stop by the thousands on their way from their wintering area to the nesting grounds. They are pretty cool to hear and watch.

What the heck are robins eating as far north as MN durring the winter? Are they finding the dormant bugs in tree bark like chickadees? I didn't think they ate seeds etc. like other birds that winter over.

Those Sandhill cranes would be something to see. We get some geese through here in the spring, but nothing like that.
