A Rare Sight

"Hundreds of Robins plus about 50 bluebirds arrived in flocks, swooping and diving for water and huddling in the tree branches. They were here for a day and then left. Then they returned on 4/14/2013. It was cold and they were ingesting little crystals of water/ice off the tops of things like cars. They were obviously thirsty and cold as they were all puffed up." Laurie Schneider, Stillwater, Minnesota, April 14
