A Remaining Robin


Robin in winter rain

Abundant food sources

Vanished with the Springtime

Lonely Robin

Seeking a fruit bearing bush

Wanders among the raindrops

Tanka

This Robin chose not to fly South for the Winter I guess. I saw him hopping around my yard in the rain and was surprised to find out that not all Robins fly South, but some stick around and eat fruit in the Wintertime. (Photo is not very clear as I had to snap it quickly using my phone thru my patio window from quite a distance)
