Winter Robin

This American robin, Turdus migratorius, is spending the winter in my Brooklyn garden.  It is normal for some robins to not migrate south for winter. They switch from a diet of summer worms to dry fruit and berries. I give this one raisins, grapes, and apple slices. To read more about winter robins, click here for a previous detailed blog.    

       "From December to March, 
there are for many of 
us three gardens: 

the garden outdoors, 

the garden of pots and bowls in the house, 

and the garden of the mind's eye.
