Today was a magical day as it was filled with a flurry of wings and color. We had a flock of robins descend into the forests and they were amazing to watch. They flitted about from branch to branch, tossed leaves up in the air looking for snacks, and were an amazing spectacle with their bright red colors. It’s so neat that we see them during the winter in Indy. All the places I’ve been before, robins are seen in spring/summer and usually just one or two at a time. Seeing them in large groups is a wonderful treat. In addition to the robins, I saw a pileated woodpecker nosing about the large trees, looking for treats. And there were wrens, sparrows, goldfinches, purple finches, chickadees, nuthatches, and titmice at the feeders all day. We had juncos on the deck picking up the dropped seeds, and opportunistic squirrels came by looking for a handout as well. It was a great day for birdwatching. Unfortunately all our birds are extremely camera-shy and fly away at the merest mention of a picture. So all I was able to capture was one picture of some robins in the forest. But I hope you enjoy it.
Blessings to you,
