On 2 occasions I've seen robins in St Paul's Swede Hollow; there's a natural spring that bubbles up water even when it's 15 degrees out. Watercress grows in the water, giving the entire experience a wonderful shock of spring in the middle of a cold, frozen, white winter. I haven't been there for a couple of years but keep meaning to go back for an outdoor form of spring in the winter.
