Found food, sort of

Food is where you find it..... first meal at dropped muffin at entrance to the park.

Next attraction at the suet feeder.............. not so easy to reach..... unless you have wings

There are several trees near the Great Lawn that have been berry-laden for a while. Not anymore. Finally, the birds are stripping them bare. This is easy for the tiny birds who can perch out on slender twigs, but the robins have a harder time. The twigs can't carry their weight, so the robins lunge, or hover and snatch. It's like watching a basketball game, - leaping up, snagging a berry. Now the trees are almost free of berries. There seems to be a schedule for what gets eaten when.
