Robins plentiful on World Peace Wetland Prairie on cold, clear November 22, 2008. Robins and other migrating birds thick and frenzied on November 23

Please click on image to ENLARGE view of robins as sun sets on November 22. Their numbers increased on November 23 under an overcast sky with approaching precipitation. Many other species of birds such as cedar waxwings and blackbirds were also migrating through the area. Trees and understory vegetation filled with roosting birds at dusk. They were checking the hackberry trees for remaining berries and began sampling the berries of the China honeysuckle and other edibles. The first ground-covering snowfall will force remaining robins to clean off the remaining berries.
