No need to squabble
Robins of the Round Table
Plenty to go ’round
Since yesterday morning, a flock of 40+ robins has been hanging out in my garden. They arrived shortly after I filled up the birdbaths with fresh water in the morning. A few minutes afterwards, I noticed a handful of robins sitting in a circle on the birdbath. There was much squabbling, posturing and flapping of wings while they all were waiting for their turn.
This morning I checked to see if the robins had returned. They had! The birdbath was frozen over and the birds seemed to be patiently waiting for me to remedy the situation. Throughout the day I ventured outside several times to check on them, refill the baths, and take some photographs of this unusual sight in my garden. Rarely do we get more than three or four robins at one time.
Getting this close to these robins surprised me, because they are very shy birds!
I so enjoyed this moment!
Late afternoon, I noticed them congregating in the trees outside my window, ready to take off for the night.
