Robins, robins everywhere

Robins, robins everywhere
By {authorlink} – 9:08 pm

So many of us are glorying in this winter’s robin extravaganza, sometimes with the added fillip of cedar waxwings in amongst flocks of at least 100 robins at a time gorging on berries and sipping water. So is this influx perhaps caused by the severe drought many parts of California experienced for a long time, perhaps forcing the robins south to more agreeable climes? This morning we had about 100 robins here, with some cedar waxwings. Especially for a former easterner like me, I am so happy to see them. But I’ve not yet heard a single robin sing for its supper! Come on, guys, give us a song.
