ROBIN INVASION

June  20, 2014

You are witness to my one and only Robin Invasion!   These photos were taken late spring, while the bird bath warmer was still in use. It started as a calm visit but caught my attention because never have I seen so many robins all together in one spot.   Within moments the news spread…..

and spread….

Was this the Robin version of a Hot Tub party????

Image

They became increasingly rambunctious and noisy as more robins arrived….

This photo still only shows a sampling.  There were more Robins in the trees and in the rest of  my back yard.  They all partied  for approximately  15 minutes, drained the Hot Tub, I mean, bird bath, dry and flew away leaving me to clean up the mess.

Meet Daisy, one of my two Yorkies.  How does Daisy fit into this posting you ponder?  Because, as sweet  as this little face may appear, Daisy loves to eat bird poop.   Thus, though the Robin Invasion was a  photo op for me, it  took on a whole different meaning for Daisy.  So I had some serious cleaning up to do…….. oh the things we do for the animals we love.    : ) 

Please provide fresh water for our feathered friends if you can and thanks for reading!
