|"You got a problem, Bud?"|
|Early summer drupes|
|Cedar Waxwing - REK|
Robins gather in flocks this time of year and we have seen up to 50 clustered on the creek bank out of the wind, browsing for seeds. They will scatter out, picking at the berries on the cedars surrounding our house on an overgrown glade. If you look along fence lines on field edges you will see small cedars they planted while seated on their barbwire toilet.
I wonder if the robins attacking the silver sprayed drupes didn't get the flavor and therefore dropped them. Who knows what toxins they might have consumed if eaten? On the other hand, they may just not be into shiny things.
