THE LINK ABOVE HAS A GREAT ARTICLE ON ROBINS. I was drinking a cup of coffee, just moments ago, when I noticed this big, beautiful robin outside our back door on a chair on our patio. I thought, great, Spring is really here. It was a sign I believe, but I wasn’t sure what. I didn’t know if Missouri Robins were a specific species or if they were the same throughout our country. So, I googled to find out more. As it turns out it is an American Robin, but Missouri has an abundance of these birds; possibly more than any area in the states. They are an interesting bird to watch. And from what I have read, they are the Rodney Dangerfield of birds. They don’t get much respect.
The robin, being so common and recognizable here in Missouri is probably taken for granted. I learned something they have in common with my favorite bird The Cardinal (no I am not talking about our baseball team). They are both divine birds, spiritually symbolic. Probably with different meanings. The robin a symbol or sign if you will of renewal. The cardinal, which I saw many (one in particular hung around for along time after the passing of my Siberian Husky, Sky), is a message everything is fine, I’m fine and you’ll be fine. Will see you again some day. Since those days a couple of years ago now, I see less cardinals. Still see them, but don’t have any in particular hang around long. I believe they give us messages, messages of hope. (note the photo of the bird above was not the same bird I saw this morning……I don’t take that good of a photo).
Symbolic characteristics and traits of a robin: The robin in the spirit world is known as the divine bird. The Robin is a symbol of good luck and the fact that spring is impending. To see a robin flying can indicate a symbol of renewal, passion and new beginnings. Alternatively, it could represent patience and wisdom
