She Comes Bob Bob Bobbin' Along

Spring is here at last. The Cherry Blossoms are painted pink across the Tidal Basin and Dawn is full of the songs of the American Robin. The National Wildlife Federation has a nice website dedicated to this harbinger of Spring.

Its name in Spanish is "mirlo primavera" which means spring blackbird. The robin is one of the first birds to sing in the morning and is one of the last to be heard at night. The male is most vocal, usually singing from high points in the morning and during courtship.
