We were driving home after getting out to vote and the visibility was not good through the wet streaky windshield of the car when I shot this image but surprised to see robins nevertheless out in this type of weather.....It was almost like a dream scene when these poor robins who migrated here expected to see grass this time of the year in spring instead of snow. I apologize for the soft quality of this image and wish I could have got a clearer focus....It would have been a good one for the Pictorial theme which has ended:)

American Robins foraging for worms
Sometimes contend with snow storms
Nor expect spring would be this late
When on their journey to migrate.....

    That is a marvelous photograph. It does look like a scene from fantasy. Surreal!

    Looks as though we've been "enjoying" weather similar to yours. Much wind and wet and snow piles. I think our forecast calls for more snow within the next week or so. ::sigh:: I have seen robins here, also.

    Excellent view of the reality that the robins, and everyone else, are up against, Andrea! I agree with Liz, it looks surreal..
