Not a robin.

I may be the only person in Alberta (Canada?  North America?) to have failed to see a robin so far this spring…my hubby says there was one looking for something in the grass beneath the Schubert chokecherry in front of our window the other day, but of course, I was at work at the time and missed it.

This northern flicker we spotted yesterday sure made me smile, though – as did the sight of the dry! patch of grass the little one was digging around in.

Have a very happy Monday!
