Crabapple Feast

These little piggies, I mean Robins, are gorging themselves on the crabapples that have hit the ground.  There were something in the range of 250-300 Robins that descended upon our neighborhood stripping all of the crabapples and hackberries from the trees.  The Robins fought with Cedar Waxwings for the crabapples.



Robins from last years invasion they show up every year at about the same time stripping the crabapples and hackberries from the trees.
