Over the past few weeks our yard has been overtaken by some migratory visitors, mainly American Robins. To alleviate some of the congestion at my neighbor's bird bath, my son and I decided to set up our own watering hole. Our two for one offer seemed to be quite the deal! (Note: don't judge me on appearance of our make shift bird bath, the birds had only good things to say)
It only took about 15 minutes for the word to get out. The Robins definitely dominated the water. Cedar Waxwings were among the other birds looking for a cool beverage, but were often kept at bay by the Robins.
The Cedar Waxwings decided they needed a plan to overthrow the Robins.
Finally, a truce!
