Ever wonder where summer birds go, and why? - Stowe Reporter

They don’t call ‘em snowbirds for nothing.

“The robin that pulled earthworms from our lawn in summer may now be in South Carolina, part of a nomadic flock of over a hundred robins, hopping about in the branches of holly trees, gorging on berries. Robins adjust their diet in winter from worms and insects to mostly fruit. Their social behavior also changes. Whereas they defend territories from other robins during breeding season, during migration and winter robins become gregarious. Living in a flock provides more eyes to detect both predators and food sources."
