Despite the trend in spring, this has not turned out to be much of a Robin Summer, to my surprise. We had a seeming bumper crop of these thrushes and I had every expectation of robins everywhere. In fact, I see few. And BirdCam does not do better. There seem to be only a few of them nearby and they may range farther up the neighborhood. What a sad thing that is! I enjoy seeing these rascals probing for prey in the yard. And the more the better! Well, it is not to be. And that means hoping for a better deal in winter, which is never the best time for robins in my part of town. At least we have lots of cardinals!
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
