Ripple Returns?

25 Apr

Since the robins’ return there has been one noticeably smaller, delicate  robin who is much less skittish than the others.  She flies into the plum tree with me 15 feet away.  She stays put on the lawn even if I walk past 10 feet away.

She seems to listen if you talk.  I think, we think, she may be Ripple.  If so, she went with the other robins in the fall, lived through the winter and flew all the way back.  No mean feat for a hand-reared robin.
