Saw a Robin this Morning
(Whitby, Ontario, Canada)
It is Monday, January 2, 2012 and the temperature is 0c.
I live in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. It was windy last night and there were some branches that fell from the maple tree in my back yard.
I was very surprised to see a Robin with a segment of earthworm dangling from it's beak.
My first reaction was to utter, "What are you doing here at this time of the year?!" This was a very surprising moment indeed!
I'm wondering why the Robin did not fly away to a much warmer climate by now.
Also, wondering if I should put some raisins out for the Robin or just let it fly away, instinctively, to a warmer climate.Hi Chuck - I'm not sure why your Robin didn't fly south in the Fall with all his friends, but he may decide to go now, or perhaps he will stick around for the rest of the winter, and be here to welcome his buddies when they arrive in early March!
