Sign of Spring?

Traditionally, robins hopping in the wet grass in search of worms are the symbolic sign of Spring. This past weekend's snow storms seemed to befuddle dozens of robins in my Post Falls neighborhood. Saturday morning upwards of 50 fat, round robins clustered close to the back deck sharing the shelter with dozens of sparrows, several starlings and even a Northern Flicker. Everywhere I looked, every bush, shrub and tree branch was covered with robins. Usually more aloof and definately not seed feeder or suet visitors, they should be feathering their nests right about now, not seeking shelter from the snow. Here's hoping April showers will be of the rainy kind and that Spring flowers will be close behind.
