SPRING NOT ROBIN WINTER YET

Is spring just around the corner? While exploring the outdoors, KTW reader Ron Edwards came across this robin staying warm by catching some rays in sub-zero temperatures. The appearance of the bird is, alas, not a sign of spring coming as small numbers of robins will often overwinter in the Kamloops area.  Twenty-one were counted in the recent Kamloops Christmas bird count.                             - RON EDWARD PHOTO
