Robins, A Bit

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!
