Early birds

     One of more than a dozen robins that Turtle Creek Drive resident Pat Stranc spotted in her yard Friday perches in a Washington hawthorn tree. Stranc has tracked the robins’ arrivals for three years and saw them in February for the first time this year. Stranc said they arrived on March 7 in 2011 and on March 8 in 2012. With unseasonably high temperature, trees are blooming early providing the robins with food like the berries on the hawthorn tree.
