Sunday morning there were a flock of over 100 robins high up in our oak trees, soaking up the early sun. They were so puffed up for warmth, they didn't look like robins at first. The neighbor says the gang had been there over a week, eating the holly berries, though those are all gone now -- probably why the robins weren't there yesterday morning. I've never seen flocks of them before. They must have come north in last week's warm weather, then gotten caught in the storms. This was in Lanham, a couple miles east and south of Bill's house (think 2:00 on the Beltway clock-face). Another friend says there's a flock like that in her oaks over in Tacky Park too, closer to where Bill lives.
Hope they don't all end up as birdsicles.
