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.
