Late this afternoon, Chuck and I headed over to the high school track for a walk. Because we have seen dozens of robins there before, this time I remembered to bring the camera. It was cool, calm and the leading edge of a cloud deck from a major nor’easter was already overhead. Sure enough the robins didn’t disappoint. They did however manage to keep a safe, and therefore not very camera-friendly, distance from us at all times!

In addition to the dozens of robins on the playing field, there was a marvelous chorus of robins singing in the trees. Because our Canon PowerShot S2 IS has a little video feature, I gave it a whirl.
Hmmm... Let’s just say I need to give it another whirl!

This is the first time I’ve ever tried uploading my own video to YouTube and embedding it in Pink Granite. I can’t figure out why the big YouTube Logo appears some of the time and at other times a still from the clip appears. Any advice?

Be warned, the sound is better than the video. Perhaps you should close your eyes and treat it as an MP3! I’ve also provided a few still photos in case you keep your eyes open!
