Spring is imminent. Last week two robins sang high in one of our neighbor’s oak trees. Soon a trio formed! We’ve endured a long, robin-less winter at least in northern Story County, Iowa. Recent news articles actually suggest though that robins often overwinter in Iowa and that Turkey Vultures are actually a better spring signal!
