I captured this shot of the robin January 5 at the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge. The temperatures here have been unseasonably warm and even the animals are a bit spooked. We don't usually seen robins until March.

    Love how his orange markings pop. We're actually having a winter in Dallas. Yes, there are those days that climb up to near 70, but then a cold front sweeps in and plunges us near freezing.

    It's called global warming, Don. So many species (like the polar bear) will not make it. But a robin is a robin and you've captured an excellent shot (as usual) !!!
