early bird, no worm

and here he is, back again for the third day in a row. note the snowstorm, in which he is sitting, and the string of cranberries, which he is artfully ignoring. he eats no seed, no suet. he just perches, with feathers ruffled against the cold wind, and then after a bit, he flies. march is once again beginning lion-like. for this little robin's sake, i hope it ends like the lamb it's supposed to.

many thanks to my bird buddy matthew for providing this link to mass audubon that explains the behaviors of over-wintering robins.

i guess this bird knows what he's doing after all.
