September: Fueling Up
Flocks of American Robins are on the move, filling up on plentiful fruits and juicy berries.
September is Here
American Robins that had three or four broods may still be raising young. As day length grows shorter, robins become restless and social. Flocks of robins are on the move, filling up on plentiful fruits and juicy berries. They are building up their body fat as fuel for fall migration.
Nan in Bristol, ME: “There was a large flock of Robins in the back yard this morning. I don’t think I have ever seen so many at one time. I wouldn’t be surprised if the actual number exceeded 30.” (09/01/2021)
