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

  1. WE HAVE MANY TORTOISES, SQUIRELS, CATS, RACOONS, FROGS, AND BIRDS OF ALL KINDS THAT WALK PAST OUR BALCONY, ON RARE MOMENTS WE CAN SPOT DEER, AND RED FOX. ONE TIME WE HAD SOME FOOD LEFT OVER THAT MY LOVED ONE WHO COULD NO LONGER HAVE, AND LEFT IT THE FOOD ON THE GROUND, ONE POSSUM, ONE RACOON, AND ONE RED FOX CAME OVER TO GRAB THE FOOD, AND ALL THREE OF THEM SHARED LUNCH TOGETHER. AMAZING THERE WAS NO FIGHTING FOR THE FOOD.
