|An American robin, Turdus migratorius, collecting food.|
That changed yesterday. One of the robins landed on the porch with a worm in its beak and started picking up (but not eating) raisins, one after the other, as many as it could carry. Then it flew away. All day yesterday the robins gathered raisins by the beak full.

I haven't found their nest yet, but I'll bet there are some robin nestlings nearby -- sated with raisins and worms.
