Harbinger Of Spring

I posted here on Blogging.la about the wonderful bird mural Susan and I discovered along Fountain Avenue near Gower while biking back from the Hollywood Farmers Market this morning. This afternoon we found that a flock of American robins had decided to hang out around our house, primarily in the backyard tree. Could they be scoping out potential nest sites? Dunno, but I did find out they’re very wary and flighty and thus hard to photograph, and as such this is the best shot of one I got (of the 25 I snapped; click to quadruplify):

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
