Robins, Ginkgos, and Cows

Lately I've noticed flocks of robins! We saw crowds of them in Shenandoah National Park and then I saw a bunch in the state arboretum. They flew off whenever I moved closer, so I'm sharing a close-up shot taken in my own yard.

While in the arboretum (also known as Blandy Farm), I saw cows grazing next door.


  1. Hello, pretty fall trees. I love the robin, they are beautiful birds. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the week ahead!

  2. Pretty scenes....
    Your bird photos are outstanding!!! The robins are so robust looking.
    Thank you for stopping by to add your link to this post for us birders this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always greatly appreciated.

  3. Hi Linda, love the shots. I remember in the fall and winter in Columbus, Ohio huge flocks of robins would gather together (and wish for spring).

  4. Sweet Robins! I haven't seen any for a while.

  5. Robins here used to fly south when I was a kid, but now many stay in the woodlands and entertain us through the winter.

  6. beautiful color. beautiful last shot.

  7. I think it's been a month since I last saw a robin here.

  8. These are lovely Linda ...

    All the best Jan

  9. It seems like an unusual time to see a flock of robins, at least for where I live. I usually only see them in the spring. Great photos!
