Out and About: Robins spotted

(Photo contributed by Sue Odell)

Is all the snow bringing you down? Maybe a sign of spring will cheer you up. It did for Sue Odell of Alexandria, who took this photo after spotting six robins in a tree in her front yard.

"We were so surprised," she said. "Yesterday [February 9] we saw about a dozen robins in the tree! Encouraging. Maybe spring is around the corner!"
