January: Living in Flocks

In January, robins wander in flocks, searching for food and water.

It’s January

In winter, robins are found from north to south. Some are basking in south Texas and Florida while others are enduring the northern winter. Many are somewhere in between. As long as they can find fruits or berries, some may stay close to their summer areas even in fall and winter. Because they move in search of food, robins are not as faithful to their wintering grounds as most other songbirds. Winter robins wander in flocks andĀ help one another find food and avoid predators.
