Well Fed Robins

As we enjoyed the sudden return to normal here in the Piedmont (temperatures of 60F+) I had the equal pleasure of watching the birds at the north feeders and at our "scratch ground".  One American Robin, or at least a robin each time I observed, had a ball.  I stirred things up enough there today which, combined with a highly rain-saturated ground, made for easy pickings for the robins.  They must have glutted themselves on worms and various other invertebrates.  Quite a sight.

In other news, dear friends, I will be offline for a good part of the coming week.  I hope to have some interesting news when I am able to resume posts.  Stay tuned!
