Pheathers – Robins in Snow

It snowed again this week. February has lived up to it’s cold reputation in southern New Jersey. For two years in a row we had little snow; we are wishing for those days back again as more icy rain is on the way tomorrow, and then another storm could arrive a few days later.

Recently, at the start of another bout of snowy weather, I looked out the window and spotted a flock of birds. I couldn’t tell by their silhouettes what type of bird they were, but thought I saw a flash of orange breast.

Sure enough, they were robins. Poor things, they looked miserable hunched against the snowflakes and wind. When I took a close-up photograph I chuckled, but also felt some sympathy, one robin had an icicle beard. Brrrr…I’m with the robins, I want Spring to come and Winter to quickly end.

      I’m not sure. I will have to read the article Janie posted in the comments. Perhaps there is some info on how they make out in the cold.

    Hi, The link a few comments up had great information about robins. I didn’t know they change behavior during different seasons. They fly together in the winter, in spring they become territorial. I love birds…so interesting. Thanks for stopping by the blog.
