With a cup of steaming coffee in my hand I sat in the patio doing what I like to do best - to admire the greenery laid against the cloud-softened skies. My eyes darted from one plant to another as I paid curious attention to their diverse characteristics and behavior. Then I noticed something else that was worth watching at that particular moment. There must have been at least ten American Robins (Turdus migratorius) around me.
After having sat there quietly for sometime, the Robins have decided that I am a garden fixture. They did what they wanted to do around me. They were busy doing the things that I did not do this year which is to harvest the grapes. They'd fly to get some grapes and then come lower and mark the next fruit to pick. It was quiet an amazing sight to see them strategize their flights to get one grape.

Looking for bugs as a short break for the neck.
Getting ready to dart.
A smarter bird gets closer to the target.
Acrobtic harvesting of grapes.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
