Outdoors -- cancel the milk carton picture

"My" robin has been missing in action.
Until yesterday.
Actually, there were three robins sitting on my fence.
None of them were vocalizing -- "my" robin comes and calls at me when he wants food.
When I opened the door to throw out some chokeberries, they all flew away.
So either "my" robin has gone wild
or he was seeing them off and planning to sneak back alone so he got all the chokeberries.
Maybe hanging out with the crowd has protected him from our Cooper's hawk.
At any rate, the berries have been disappearing,
but the robin eating them has been doing so on the QT.
