Hungry Flock of Robins Invades Florida

Severe winter up north - American Robins going the wrong way in Late February. Not sure what it portends, but a rare Backyard visit by a flock of 100's of ravenous Robins is a wild scene and causes consternation by interrupting the daily routine of the resident Blue Jays and Squirrels. The Robins form large flocks in winter and are on the lookout for food and will attempt to eat anything that looks remotely edible including Brazilian Peppers, Palmetto Berries, Chinese Tallow seeds and of course kicking around for bugs in leaf litter. They depart as suddenly and loudly as they arrive! Always a treat as Robins are a very rare sight around here.
