Default Robin Is spring around the corner?

Saw a male robin in my bird bath this morning. Hopefully this is a good sign that spring is close. He was in great looking shape for coming that far.
Now get the covid shot and it will be a good year. Any more signs of spring fellas?

I often saw small flocks of robins during winter down in Glenmore park. A few buds out here on the Island. Crocus in another month.

There's been quite a few Robins and other migratory birds overwintering the last several years

The one you saw has almost definitely been here all winter
