American Robins visited in a huge flock of several hundred birds along with about that same number of Boat-tailed Grackles on Wednesday, January 25, 2017, in my neighborhood. Almost every one of the trees along my street here were bustling with birds!
American Robins are not true robins at all. These birds are members of the Thrush family of birds. I have observed that most of the American Robins like staying in taller trees. These birds usually feed on the ground and enjoy earthworms, grubs, and insects. They also will take seeds, berries and fruits. This bunch of birds were here for a few hours and then moved onward. I think they were a migratory flock. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the photo. Enjoy!
