A Sign of Spring?

This American Robin was perched on a signpost outside the veterinary yesterday. I saw it after picking up Charlie from day boarding. The dogs don't play together there like they do in doggy daycare centers, but the attendants play with him and he gets to run in their play area. He loves the girls who work there. 

Although robins are considered a sign of spring, we see them year-round in Virginia. They seem more active in springtime, probably because it's the season to start a family.
