Nice to see them, isn't it?
If they were in a flock, they were probably robins that stayed all winter. People think they all leave for warmer parts come fall, but up to 50% overwinter in flocks in their breeding areas up here. We just tend not to see them as much during winter, though mine have hovered around my yard since December so I got to take lots of pics.

I haven't seen any robins here in Niagara county yet but I did hear one very early this morning.

I finally saw a lone Robin last week at the top of my maple tree. Yesterday I saw her fly past the front porch out into the garden bed. I am only seeing one at a time so I sure hope that there are more in the area.
