Winter Chill

This robin is all puffed out due to the cold. It barely got to freezing.

He surely has a poofy look. You have robins already? We'll be at least a month before we spot one, even in this unusually warm winter.

@beach: They all just seemed to show up yesterday. A one point there must have been 8 of them in the tree when I took this picture.

I have never seen a robin in the winter, so this is interesting! A beautiful close-up Elaine, the colors are striking... nice detail also! So cute!!
