Robin Watch

I spent a long time yesterday watching a robin eating berries from a bush in my neighbor’s garden.  This viewing was from the window in my study.  The robin was finally disturbed by the appearance of a Northern Flicker and off she flew.  But a couple of hours later I viewed a very similar or the same fat robin eating more berries.  This view was from my kitchen window.  What a joy.

in both pictures the robin is approximately in the center – easy to spot with a magnifying glass – the robin’s back is turned in the second photo

that robin ate so many berries!
