During the lull I went outside to shovel the driveway, thinking it would be a quick job. Instead, it took me, Hubby Tony, and Son Donald 45 minutes to scrape off the icy mix. After we were done Donald moved his car off the street and onto the driveway to make it easier for the snow plow. He came back inside and said there was something going on in the yard I should look at.
From my position at the living room window, the holly bush just to the left of the front door looked like it was alive! I took a closer look and realized it was full of robins. I counted a dozen birds perched on the bush eating berries, and probably that many more on the ground around that and the other hollies planted in the bed that stretches across the front of the house.
I grabbed my camera to take a picture, but since the bushes are close to the window every time I moved the camera into position I'd spook some of the birds. It didn't help that Jackson the cat was next to me on his hind legs chattering away at the excitement going on outside.
|Can you see all six birds?|
