My back yard was loaded with what I think were robins. They were in the holly tree and bushes eating the berries. That's what threw me off. I didn't realize that they ate berries. Once the holly berries were gone so were the robins.

the robins were here 2 days ago. I just hope that spring will come. Today it is wonderfuly warm and springlike. Hope I'm not getting suckered in and that Mother Nature isn't waiting with some snow/cold up her sleeve.

Robins eat primarily earthworms in the spring and Summer. In Fall and Winter they become vegetarian and eat primarily berries, ESPECIALLY Hackberries, Holly, and in mid-spring Mulberries.

You probably did hear one singing, Penny! IN Tennessee, we have Robins all year. We actually have MORE Robins in Winter than in Summer. The Canadian and northern US Robins that migrate south for the Winter migrate to......THE SOUTHEASTERN US! In Winter Robins form GIGANTIC flocks of HUNDREDS of birds that travel and feed on Wintertime berries together, and tend to congregate in LARGE tracts of FOREST rather than suburban lawns. In spring they split up into mated pairs and move to suburban lawns to forage for earthworms. That is the time they migrate back to Canada. The huge flocks have split up now and I am seeing several pairs of Robins hopping across my lawn again.

I saw a couple Robins in my backyard yesterday. I tried to get my camera out (it's usually around my neck at all times) But by the time I got it out, they'd flown to the next yard and my Zoom just ain't that great..LOL I guess I should start putting food back in the feeder now.

Actually Robins won't come to feeders to eat. They are, however, CRAZY about birdbaths! To attract Robins to your yard provide good nesting cover, plant berry producing trees and shrubs like Mulberries and Hackberries, and MOST important......BIRDBATHS!!!! grinnnn Birdbaths are ESPECIALLY effe4ctive if they splash, drip or spray. Birds love this noisy spraying action.
