Amidst the snowstorm today, we had this visitor in the backyard.
Earlier this week we had some unexpected visitors to our yard – a flock of about 20 Robins that must have been blown up the coast by the Christmas storm. It was fairly warm on Monday (when the picture above was taken) so they weren’t in any apparent hurry to leave.
On Tuesday, the weather turned very cold. Unfortunately, there was also a very brisk wind so the birds were stuck. About the only thing they could find to eat were the holly berries in the bushes by our front door. I was able to get some nice shots through the dining room window.
I haven’t seen them since Tuesday evening, so imagine they managed to make their way south to warmer climes.
