Nature Through My Lens

In the Main Stream


A little way down our street there is a number of Hawthorne trees, which are full of berries! They have been frozen, but are now thawing out. This has attracted a flock of American Robins (Turdus migratorius) like these two. The female is on the right. We counted about 30 birds. They were eating berries and drinking water from the stream along the curb!

    This is another common bird, yet so pretty. We rarely have them show up in winter.

    • Ruth, Thank you! They seem to leave here around November and are back about this time! I’ve never seen so many in one group!
