To answer challenge question #8, this is what we think:
We think the ice-storm would be worse because the robins would have more
difficulty finding a food source when it is covered with ice. They may be
able to dig a little in the snow to find food, but the ice may stop them.
Also sleet would be more difficult for a robin because the snow wouldn't
stick to it's feathers, but the ice might making it difficult for them to
#9 Food is more important for the robins because it gives them fat to
protect them from the cold and it gives them energy to migrate.

name on the web site.
