Awww Monday! January 16, 2023

I always thought robins migrated south in
the winter, but we still see them flying
in and out of our trees!
Maybe it's not so cold for these robins??
So I googled and this what I found out:
"American Robins can be found year round in Washington
although most often the birds that breed in Washington
migrate south and are replaced for the winter by birds that
nest further north. Large migratory flocks can be seen
in the spring and fall."
Once again I have learned something new!
Have a great week!
Thanks Sandee!


  1. We have robins all the time. Maybe ours migrate like that as well.

  2. It's funny, we live in the South be we don't see many robins around in Winter.

  3. They are most beautiful and welcome any time!

  4. Nice capture, It's always good to learn something new heh! ;-)

    Have a Robintastic day 👍

  5. We don't have any here in MN in the winter, maybe it depends on how harsh the winters are.

  6. I've learned something new too. I love birds and we're feeding dozens and dozens of hummingbirds this winter. It's fun to watch them.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Love and hugs all around. ♥

  7. We have robins year around. However, I had no idea Washington also had them year around. My friend in Western PA never sees them after Sept.

  8. Not too many robins around this part of BC right now. But then, we still have a blanket of the white stuff. We do have Cedar Waxwings, and they are cleaning out the Mountain Ash trees,

  9. I am in Massachusetts and still see them around in winter.

  10. Informative and interesting post ~ lovely header photo ~ Xo

  11. In Ohio we have some that hang around all year too. Doesn't seem like they always did that though.
