There are so many robins this winter; more than I have ever seen! I don't recall seeing this many at one time, even during spring. I picked up my daughter from work yesterday and the trees were full of robins! It was a frigid day with single digit temperatures and wind chills below zero. The robins were all puffed up trying to keep warm. They look so fat!
Here at my own home I have had large flocks of robins eating from the Bradford pear tree. The berries on my tree are almost gone.
We have quite a bit of winter left, I hope the robins will be able to find plenty of food. Between the starlings and the robins the trees in the surrounding area are almost stripped clean.
I do hope this is a sign of early spring. I am so ready for it!
