This is just a page about a flock of birds that covered our yard one cold day in January.

They especially loved the bird bath and fought over it.

Sometimes there were many birds at the bird bath, sometimes only one.

What was most strange was the yard was covered with them.

I caught this blurry photo of one of them just taking flight.

The most mysterious thing about this flock of birds was they were all Robins.

Here's a larger photo.

I had to ask my son-in-law about this.  He's an outdoorsman and told me that, yes, Robins do sometimes flock like this at certain times of the year.  I guess we're never too old to learn new things.  In over 60 years I had never seen anything like it.
