Total surprise

Couldn't believe it.  It's freezing outside. A flock of robins arrived in our garden, over 30!  Mostly male. Aggressive. As if we don't have enough branches.  It's too soon. It's too cold, but they're here hell bent on staking out claims. There aren't even enough bushes where they can take cover in case of snow. The ground is too hard for digging for worms. But they're here.
Also here, but no surprise, the tufted titmouse, and.....
the yellow bellied sapsucker
but robins??  Not the first time.
