November is Here
During November migration is well underway – and it never really ends. Robins are on the move throughout autumn, winter, and early spring. Winter robins are social and travel in flocks, relying on one another to find food and watch for predators. Robins now spend more time in trees than on the ground. Fluffing out their down feathers keeps them warm in cold temperatures.
Susan in McCook, NE: “This is the most robins we have seen together all season. They were at our water pots that we put out for the birds to drink or bath in.” (11/03/2020)
Patty in Ansonia, CT: “I saw about a dozen robins all day long eating the red berries on our tree in the front yard. Enjoyed watching them.” (11/03/2020)
