Autumn Robin - Cameos of Bird Life #14
An iridescent mist across the fields shines like a cloud of light above the dew-wet grass. As the day slowly finds its way the soft autumn sunshine, shorn of summer glare, lights up the fern, in glowing shades of yellow and brown.
And robins sing again ...
The Robin is passionately territorial, and having just recovered his voice, now sings all day from early morning to late at night. And will, on mild days, continue without interruption till the end of next June.
leaves fall ...
outside my window
a robin sings
If you’re lucky to have a garden he’ll never be far away even though you may not see him; his song will be ever present - greeting you as you first step outside in the morning and still singing as the lights go on at night.
