For the last two previous evenings I have observed 100s of American Robins moving toward a tree plantation. Many of the birds perch in one of the deciduous trees and later duck into the densely growing spruce trees that vary from 10 to 20 feet in height. This observation is on Grey Cloud Island in the tree plantation on Pioneer Road as it exits Co. Rd. 75. Most of the robins come in from the west which suggests that they are coming from along the Mississippi River. It is like the spruce trees swallow up the birds, you watch them come in and disappear. The robins are joined by a few Mourning Doves.
