There used to be berries on the trees outside of our living room window. For weeks now a very large group of American Robins have been gathering in the tree line just past our yard and NOT eating those berries.
February sixth, the day after a six inch snowfall and apparently having been told we are to have six more weeks of winter, these robins decided to eat almost every last berry: all on the same day! About six Blue Jays hung around all day to help with the berry feast along with a Northern Mockingbird pair and a few European Starlings.
Why that day? My son Dakota who has decided to start up blogging again thinks he has the real scoop : American Robin Warfare. I don’t know about that, but it sure was interesting to watch.
Now we’ll see who shows up for the Great Backyard Bird Count! Good birding out there and stay warm!
