American Robins are now migrating through our property, Bobolink Farm, in large numbers. We love to watch them flying in the early morning when they're illuminated by the sun. They often stop on our property because we have so many berry producing shrubs here.
Robins can sometimes stay in more northern areas as long as there are berries available. People are often suprised to see them during the colder months. When berries diminish and extremely severe weather moves in they will go farther south. We go to Sanibel Island, FL in winter and have seen thousands of robins wintering there, often eating the fruits of the native palm trees.
We kinda hate to see them go because it means winter is coming to NH. But we know we will experience the thrill of seeing the first robin return in the spring.
