Robin Food

    “What do Robin’s eat?”
    Up until yesterday, if someone would have asked me that question I would have answered, “Worms and insects,”  but now I know differently.  They also eat berries, and cherries.  
    Joan noticed a lot of bird activity on our Mountain Ash tree, and I assumed it was Cedar Waxwings that had congregated to eat the red berries, but upon closer inspection, I saw that it was a small flock of Robins that were doing all of the eating.  They were also flying over to the nearby cherry tree to feast on the left over cherries.  
    What an education we would get if we just spent more time looking at things instead of just making assumptions.
