Bird Bath Buddies

  • This flock of robins has gathered at a bird bath. Did you notice how the bird in the air holds its wings? He's putting the brakes on for landing!

  • The robins that stay around in the fall and winter drink, feed, roost, and perch close together. How do you think this helps them stay alive?

  • In the spring, robins like their own space! They don't like other birds getting too close to their nests, babies, and food!

  • Clues that they're not nesting: 1. They're close together, 2. They're not fighting, 3. There's snow on the ground.
