November: Surviving Winter
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.
