On a damp overcast day, a cloud of of Robins descended on our garden. The Dragon Lady hollies provided an abundance of food for the traveling flock. Their beautiful birdsongs filled the neighborhood as they went from tree to tree, devouring any remaining winter fruits.
Read more here about gardens planted to nourish American Robins and other songbirds.
I witnessed a 40 ft. holly berry tree being stripped by red-breasted birds. They were way too large to be robins, I thought. There were 50 or more birds on the tree with more flying in or away. It was phenomenal. Looking it up on this site verified that they were, indeed, robins; by video, by song, and by habit.
Yes, that’s what they do. They eat every last berry, and then move onto the next yard. So glad you were able to id form our posts 🙂 Thank you for writing.
