Robin Migration Stop

We have had many American Robins migrating through our NH property. This recent robin is in our "Prairie Fire" crabapple tree. The migrating robins stop in because they love to eat the crabapples. Many people ask us about seeing robins now, or even later in the fall and winter. They wonder if the robins are too far north and not migrating properly. American Robins wander widely in winter and sometimes, they stay farther north, especially if they can still find food supplies, like these crabapples.
When the food supplies give out and more severe weather comes, the robins migrate farther south to places like Florida.
