Winter Robins

Years ago in the winter, a neighbour called to say that a tree behind her house was full of robins. For a moment we didn't believe her but it was true. Robins were this far north in the middle of winter. Now we watch for them in January and February. They have been eating the mountain ash berries. My photos are not clear, I took them through our screened windows, but you can see that yes it is a robin.
