Just about a month ago we witnessed Robins galore massing in the trees around a small pond. Swooping in for what sure looked like one final long-and-luxurious bath before the pond froze over. On this day up to 10 or more Robins would swoop down form the spruce trees surrounding the pond and take what seemed a communal bath. We witnessed two, three and sometimes fours birds clustered together soaking and communicating for minutes at a time. It was fun to observe a different, albeit subtle, variation in bird bathing behavior.
