Reading Mother Nature - could it mean early Spring?

Sorry but no. Both bluebirds and robins are very common all winter here in NJ. They change their diets to berries from holly, bittersweet, poison ivy, cedar, etc. They form big flocks and travel around in search of food. Many of the winter robins are canadians who spend the winter here. There are more robins in NJ during the winter than in spring and summer.

HaterasJ,

Not sure where you are located but Eastern Bluebirds are found in NJ year round. They are also year-round residents to eastern PA, southern NY and east to areas within southern MA. The American Robin is not as widely distributed in winter as the bluebird, but it's winter range does include mostly all of NJ excluding the ridge and valley section.

 

I wish spring was on it's way. Growing up I used to await the blooming of dogwood trees to signal the arrival of the herring... More closely correlated to temperatures...

Hey, whether or not we get an early Spring...I don't know, but with it being almost mid-January already, it won't be too damn long. It'll be here before we know it. Before we know it we'll be down in the surf again throwing whatever and watching the birds working, the bass and blues blitzing, the bunker boats scooping up every living thing in sight........you get the picture.mad.gif

View PostOkay, I had high hopes for this thread, now I'm more depressed. Can't you guys just lie a little.

 

Look at it this way....as of tomorrow, meteorologically speaking, winter will be half over. Coldest 90 days of the year are December 1 to March 1.

I agree w dirty beach kid however the last few days got me wishing for some milder days,,, and it looks like we're about to get some 40's,,yippee.

I refuse to remain indoors and am getting out,, just not as long as usual,,and I'm not walking the beach as much,,and haven't fished in 3 weeks.

I think I need some viagra or depression meds.. only for a day or 2.

oh,, I saw some cedar waxwings,,cool birds,,couldn't get a shot off.
