Photo Share: Robin in frozen grass

The America Robin (Turdus migratorius) is found year round in the mid-Michigan area but they usually form large flocks and head to the woods to forage for fruit, nuts and berries.  

During cold snaps I’ve seen American Robins leave the woods to come devour our crab apples, Mountain Ash tree berries, and sometimes they venture under my feeders to look for dropped nuts. You can also feed robins chopped apples, suet, mealworms, or peanuts on a tray feeder. And they appreciate open water too.

Thank you Pippalou for allowing me to share your photo on the blog! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
