Robins

I know we've all seen plenty of Robins by now ... but here's a few more anyway

We were actually in a parking lot outside the old Home Depot (now known as The Christmas Tree Shop) when I spotted this flock in a large group of Sumac. They were grateful for a semi-warm day and something to eat.

By now I'm sure they have all filled their bellies with plenty of worms. Protein, it does a body good ; )
















Even though she remained somewhat hidden behind the Sumac, this female Robin was sweet nonetheless




Have a nice Tuesday : )

They sure look as if they have not gone without a meal lately. Great photos as always!

That last shot is perfect! I haven't seen a robin here yet in the Adirondack Mts. Some years a few stay over,.. can't imagine what they find to eat that is on their "menu".. So good to see your great photos of them!

Laura said...

Love seeing that shot with the wings open - great job, Sharon!

Beautiful, Sharon, I don't know what is on that bush, but it sure looks delicious!

Lori said...

It's a robin convention! I wonder if they are talking about what they all did over the winter?

Kerri said...

Oh I LOVE Robins! There song is so sweet!! They are singing up a storm here today...the first day we've been without rain in about 5 days. So LOTS of worms to be had!!

Love these shots!

Thanks Di and Laura!

No Robins yet Cedar? I'm surprised. We've had Robins all winter long off and on but now they're everywhere. Hopefully you'll see them this week!

I'm assuming you don't have Sumac bushes in Texas, Nancy.

Lori, ha haa! There probably so happy to see one another again!

Kerri, 5 days of rain? Yuk! That's almost worse than all the snow we've had!

Thanks for stopping by Kritter Keeper!

Hip Chick, Aren't you loving them first thing in the morning?

I'm with you Eve! Down with snow!!! Unfortunately there's still quite a bit to be found 'round these parts ; )

Hi Erin! You're welcome : )

Very nice. Can never get enough of birdies.

I can remember when we were kids in school, it was always a competition to see who could report the first robin of the spring. : )

Connie said...

The last photo was my favorite - also love the new header photo!

Jayne said...

I've never seen a big flock like that Sharon! Great shots!

Allison said...

When I was scrolling down and hit that first photo with all of the robins I actually lost my breath for a moment. Spectacular!

Denise said...

Love the robins, they look like they have eaten quite well throughout the winter. The ones in Florida are so skinny, maybe they need to go north for a visit. That is one sweet bird all there by herself.

No matter how many times we see Robins, they are still such nice birds. Great photographs.

Mary said...

Fabbo Robin photos! We always think of them as such ordinary birds - a sign of spring is all - but aren't they really wonderful?

What beautiful photos you have Sharon. I just found your comment on my blog. Glad you stopped by or I never would have found you on here. I love all wildlife, even though I only get to see it from my windows. But I have plenty! I'll be back often! Hugs. Ginny
