Robins in Western MA...is this normal?
Today, we were out for a walk and saw a flock of robins feeding in the scrub, maybe on berries growing in the trees, not sure. I used to see this when I lived in Florida, during the late winter. A huge swarm would arrive in my neighbor's holly tree, they'd make quite a ruckus and pick the thing clean. I have never seen them grouped like this, up in the trees and in great numbers, up north...usually just small groups hopping around, ground feeding in the Spring.
Does anyone know why they're here? Are they late leaving or early returning? Or just really confused? (I am!)
