Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your observant doggie reporter

Despite the cold weather, the birdies are moving along with their spring time plans. These include fighting for territory, finding a mate, building a nest, and raising baby birdies. The Stodgy Robin Society is no exception. It seems we have a pair who have claimed our yard as their own. Please allow me to introduce Sir Rupert Pinfeathers and his mistress Lady Hildegarde Hoppington. I have not discovered their nesting site yet.
This royal pair hop regally around the yard looking for big juicy worms, which they gobble up with gusto. They dive bomb any other robins who try to trespass on their personal domain. They might seem very stately and dignified, but they go downright Kamikazi when it comes to their property rights.
My ghostwriter said that when she drove around the block, there was a pair of robins in every yard! She said she had to watch out because once in a while, one would come zooming across the road at low altitude. She remembers a few years ago, as she was driving to work, a robin smacked right into the driver's side window. She felt sorry for the poor birdie, but she was glad her window wasn't open or else it would have hit her on the side of the head!
