QUESTION OF THE DAY:

This question comes from the area around Nelson, British Columbia. We have robins here in winter, and not just a couple either. What gives?

ANSWER:

Believe it or not, robins will overwinter in southern Canada when the weather isn't too severe and food supplies are abundant. A lot of city subdivisions have planted mountain ash trees, whose berries are a favorite of robins. This also contributes to their hanging around during the winter. Global climate change also may be a factor in their increased numbers.
