Thirsty Robins
Water is important to robins in winter:

"A large flock of robins (over 50!) and a flock of black birds are sitting in the trees of my back yard, drinking from our waterfall. Jeanne Q. in Gainesville, GA (January 24, 2014) 

"Despite a snowstorm yesterday, today I saw them lounging and eating snow on the porch." Rosemarie D.. in Riverside, NJ (January 22, 2014) 

"Twelve robins showed up in the trees and bushes in my backyard in snow-covered in Michigan! They drank water from my heated bird bath. Jan W. in Ann Arbor, MI (January 18, 2014)
