Regular Robin visitors at feeder
As the winter was coming to a close here in Rhode Island, I noticed a female robin eating the berries from my crabapple tree. She came every morning without fail. s the berries disappeared, I started to spread soaked raisins under the tree. which she readily devoured.
I moved my feeder from the backyard to the front yard because of several hawk attacks. It wasn't to far from my crabapple. I use a hopper feeder with a tray feeder attached to the bottom, allowing for a variety of visitors. I also hang a piece of wood from my pole system with Wild Bird Unlimited bark butter. That was the draw for her. She came several times a day to gobble up the bark butter.
I then put out dried meal worms that had been soaked and soaked chopped raisins. She came everyday for these and finished the tray. I stopped putting out the worms and raisins for a couple of weeks. She then came and ate shelled sunflower seeds!! She even hisses at the other resident birds to make sure she gets her fair share. I love seeing her everyday an hope she remains in my yard.
I will try to get photos, unfortunately, I usually see he through my window and the screen makes for a bad picture. I will see what I can do.
