Back to this week's update.

Seeing robins in January or February doesn't mean spring is around the corner. Robins live all over North America and as far north as Alaska. As short-distance migrants, most robins travel only a few hundred miles south of their nesting grounds. When it's cold, how do they survive? You'll discover the answer in this week's report!

Ontario, Canada, Feb. 9: "Out for a walk in our snowy wonderland yesterday afternoon. We had just received over 12 inches of snow. Much to my surprise I saw a Robin sitting in a small tree. I totally didn't expect to see this. Great survival instincts!"
