Robins robins robins

Robins feasting on dried crabapples
When I came home from an errand I was pleasantly surprised to see that this crabapple tree was chattering with robins and a few starlings.  As many times I've seen this tree filled with hungry birds (since October), there are still tons of dried fruit to be had.  

Right now we're getting a freezing spitty gritty rain.  Not good for the roads.  The birds, however, don't seem to mind chomping down on glazed fruit.

  1. I'm so tired of rain. Especially the freezing spitty gritty kind.

  2. Glazed fruit - sounds quite a delicacy. Your robins are quite a bit bigger than ours. Obviously the early settlers from Britain felt that the bird world wasn't complete without a robin, but it's quite a leap of size from the British robin to yours.

  3. Hey, I bet some of my summer robins are down there enjoying your apples. Don't send me the bill.

  4. They must be having a feast!!

  5. We are getting snow at last.

    No robins here....also no crabapple.
    I need to plant one for the birds.

    I just realized we forgot to buy birdseed yesterday! They will have to make do with hen scratch a while longer.

  6. Oh, I can't wait till I have trees with "bird fruit" on them!

    We have huge robins, too. They hop around in the back yard looking for worms. I've never seen them at the feeders, though.


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
