I was beginning to think I wouldn’t see any robins this winter, but today they showed up in droves. A good sized flock did something they’ve never done in past years. They came to the patio to drink and bathe in the bird bath. Normally they keep their distance from the house, but something made them change their minds this year. Along with the robins was a large flock of cedar waxwings that joined the robins at the bird bath. It was a joy to see them, but since they are so wild and skittish, I didn’t dare go outside. I took this photo from inside the house looking through the glass French doors that lead to the patio. This robin had a leisurely drink and didn’t seem to be bothered by my peering at him through the glass doors.
