Small Stone: Flock of Robins
Walking the dogs at Colorado State University this morning, making our way through a stand of trees next to some of the campus greenhouses, we are swarmed by a flock of Robins. We try to count them, but getting an accurate number is difficult, as they flit from branch to branch, fly from tree to tree, mostly won’t stay still, but our guess is there are between 15 and 25. I have never seen so many in one place, together. I am amazed, and happy, and a tiny bit sad, without needing to explain any of it.
