And Now, Winter Robins

We are on winter species watch here at Cary BirdCam, and it looks like our first contestant is American Robin.  I haven't seen robins in weeks.  And today, a small flock on the front lawn.  I've learned from experience that Piedmont-to-coastal winter robins are good flockers.  Hence, I connect the dots: we have winter migrants who spent their summer up north!  These birds will have a good week at the start.  It's been wet and warm, and the insects and whatever else should be easy to find.  It's good to see them.  Who's next?
