Anybody else notice how many robins are still here this late. I don't ever remember seeing this many this deep into archery season. Some mornings it sounds like spring in the woods !

I noticed some robins are still here yesterday. Most years they are gone by now.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

I was still seeing some a couple of weeks ago. I suspect the frost this morning and the ushering out of the unusually warm October they will be gone soon.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Robins are year around. The red wing black bird is the one that will head south. Old timers use to say when you see the red wing black in the spring then winter is over.

A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work!

I always see robins. I have a lot of holly trees and when the first snow hits they strip every berry off in less than a day and a half. There are hundreds of them.

A lot of the robins you are seeing now are the ones that have migrated south from Canada and New England. Some will stay around and others will move farther south.

Nature can teach us alot.

I'm sure there are a lot migrating due the recent cold front.
I remember flintlock hunting after Xmas a couple seasons ago and it was single digests and a flock of Robin's a d other small birds were hammering grapes in a thicket. I was a little worried that the sound of stuff dropping wasnt just twigs and grapes lol!
I'd imagine as long as there food they stick around in the woods. People just don't see them in their yards like in spring
