Robins stick around all winter here in North Carolina. The residents flock up in the Fall and then disperse again this time of year to start staking out their nesting territories. We'll also get migratory flocks stopping by.
We have about 8 of them hanging around for the last week or so. I feel bad them with the 18" of hard snow cover we have here. I don't know how they can survive this brutal weather with nothing available for them to eat. We are way below normal temps here.
I think I saw a group of robins last week here in Pittsburgh. I definitely saw one this afternoon when I walked out of my basement workshop to apply some organic weed killer to a small spot… Something I learned from the neighbors dog!
year round. In the dead of winter with snow on the ground I see them in my front yard digging around for grubs. Right now they're out there by the hundreds. I have a lot of yard moss and apparently a lot of worms under the moss and they're tearing up the moss for me, getting the worms out. Fine with me. Boys and girls both. mostly boys though. We were sitting eating dinner and one of them tried to fly into the window earlier. Knocked hisself silly too.
The migrators got here a few days ago. A good mix of males and females have been feeding most of the day in the back lawn. In in Central NC, but not far south of the Virginia line.
It's nice to see them back. I was just in Atlanta and the males are already singing and setting up territories.
