We always put our jelly feeder with grape jelly out for the Baltimore Orioles and Catbirds this time of the year. But the past few days we have had this one Robin who has been eating nonstop, and the other birds were having a hard time getting their share. (Click on blog link for other photos. )
So Phil decided that we were going to declare “War on the Robins” and only put out a little bit of jelly in our smaller feeder. Then maybe everyone would get their fair share and the Robin wouldn’t be so piggy. I never knew that Robins would even eat jelly.
And then he looked up in the tree and there was this little baby Robin looking down at him waiting for mom to bring him some jelly. Well, that was the end of that war and the big feeder full of jelly is back out and they can eat what they want.
Such a cute little thing!
