This is better than going to the movies.
One of my pals asked if robins will eat the worms that are currently dead on the pavement. I haven't seen that, but I did see this robin pick up a very dead worm from the ground, stiff dead, rigor mortis dead, and eat it down, a crispy critter worm, crunch food.
There's a specific stance before the yank. Think of robin-the-pointer. Then comes the worm routine.
