...an American Robin puffed up and insulated against the frigid temperatures heard my camera click behind the glass of the kitchen door. She paused to investigate the sound then went back to eating her breakfast of yummy blueberries.
...a beautiful eye, and that rusty red breast looks sun-kissed warm!
...a robin can puff up like nobody's business.
...an interesting study.
...blueberries lay frozen on the deck among patches of snow...irresistible to our berry-loving robins.
In the winter, our deck becomes one very large bird feeder it seems, but we rarely see robins on the deck because they pass the seeds by, but....put out a berry or two, and they will show up. This robin also hunted among the seeds for coconut shreds I had mixed in with oatmeal and breadcrumbs.
...and then the sun came out...and stayed out, and everyone lived happily ever after!! Yeah!
