the first signs of spring

that is the wisconsin state bird. also known as a robin. the only robin i thought ever existed.

my married an english chap has taught me that there are other robins too. and apparently the robin is the national bird of britain. doesn't look quite the same though...

so, instead of calling these birds completely different names (which maybe there is some sort of scientific name for them), they are called 'american robin' and 'european robin'.

just thought i'd share.
