Robins on Guard

Robins standing guard at the base of a sculpture. Actually the sculpture was sitting near one of the few areas of open water at the Missouri Botanical Garden a few weeks ago. The robins would land on the base or on a nearby wall and wait their turn to drop down to the edge of the ice and get a drink. They would then fly back up to one of these perches and repeat the process. I watched about 20 robins do this for 10 – 15 minutes and they were still there when I had to leave.
