Robins Means Spring

The morning blizzard came in mid-March,
Occurring outside my window glass.
A magnificent sight awaited me -
more than 100 robins were flying en-masse,
landing in back yard for me to see.
Sign of spring - robins doing the chasse.

    Ronnie's comment has disappeared! Whatever she said, she helped inspire my first comment.

    I am enjoying the hummingbirds, goldfinch, Eurasian collared doves, black-capped chickadees and quail in my yard this year. I also saw a black-headed grosbeak a few weeks ago. They are not common here.

    I love robins, and I really like the rhyme pattern you used:
    A B C B C B

    As Ronnie, said, Wow! I've never seen more than a few at a time, either.
    Very interesting!
    (I've seen robins doing the chase, but never the chasse!)
