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!

A Robin in the snow at the birdbath. We keep the birdbath heated. It’s important for birds to have a source of water in the winter. They really need it!
Here’s another American Robin.
Today, it’s snowing again! This forlorne Robin (Turdus migratorius) was sitting in the Japanese Maple tree in our front yard. It really did look quite lost, sitting there giving off the occasional tweet. Maybe got home a little soon!

Here’s a bird we love to see this time of the year, cause it’s a sure sign of Spring.
