Ubiquitous worm eaters


I am perfectly still.


Then I am running.

American Robins are often found running around on the lawn, stopping sometimes to pull worms out of it. Sometimes they hold very still, waiting for some worm clues.

But this afternoon I also watched a couple of them rustling around awkwardly and atypically in a bush in the backyard.


I went over to inspect the bush and found that the first blueberries are ripening. I guess they like a bit of blueberry pie for dessert after worms.

American Robins are industrious and authoritarian birds that bound across lawns or stand erect, beak tilted upward, to survey their environs.
