Katie and I were outside this morning, just as the sun was coming up. She was sniffing around looking for the perfect place when from across the street two robins flew up from the lawn, flapping their wings and screeching at each other. Up and down they flew, chest against chest, then they began chasing each other in larger and larger circles still screeching. Soon other robins entered the fray, and they all began swooping and diving in a frantic dance. The swarm of robins burst across the road, diving around our heads, then spun around a tree, then flew back across the road where they all dissipated, each to a separate tree except for two who ended up on the lawn where it all began.
Katie and I looked at each other. “Well that was weird” I said. She nodded and finished up what we were out there to do. We headed inside for breakfast.
Morning peace was restored.
