Harvest Time

The berries on the dogwoods have ripened in the last few days and robins have been taking full advantage of the food source.  One of our neighbors has a line of dogwoods along the road and I noticed the other day that they were loaded with clusters of berries.  One was so loaded, the entire tree looked berry red.  I had noticed a flock of robins on the trees while walking the dog in the morning and by evening they were comletely stripped of berries.  The flock also visited the dogwood in our yard.  This juvenile was one of many that spent the afternoon filling it's belly.
