Feeder Tips

Robins prefer worms and berries but can be found at feeders eating fruit including grapes and berries.  In the winter months they will visit trees that have berries from the summer growing season.  To attract them hang a nesting box, plant fruit-bearing trees and shrubs and set out a bird bath.
