American Robin

In the woodlands, the loose, nomadic wintering flocks of resident birds are beginning to gather - chickadees, nuthatches, Downy Woodpeckers, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Brown Creepers.

Many Hermit Thrushes are also moving through the woods, but these did not provide any photo opportunities.

Migrating robins are increasingly common. Several were feeding on buckthorn berries in one patch- such as this one which insisted on staying half hidden ...

Then it popped onto a branch and perched/posed very cooperatively ...


Good birding!

Chris,

Beautiful photos. That little Robin definitely did cooperate! The second and third shots are especially impressive. Nice job.

Ok I see you got some hard time to get it... But the two last shots are a reward to your patience... They are beautiful! Well done Chris.

Very beautiful! Kind of looks like the Robin is giving you the "evil" eye - lol!
