Recession Proof Robins

The days are well beyond the official proclamation of Spring but I have yet to see that first robin with a worm in its beak which is my definition of Spring. What I have seen are obese robins dancing around on the lawn, pecking away at insects. How did they get so fat during the horrible winter? They certainly are not a testimony to the recession we are experiencing. What do they know that we don’t know? Nothing! They’re bird brains! They’re too stupid to fret over where the next insect will come from. Live it up today there may not be a tomorrow, that’s their motto. Come to think of it nature’s creatures are recession proof. Well, maybe not those which would make a meal.

I finally saw one this morning. It was like CLUE...Mrs. Robin, on the driveway, with a beak!
