A few days ago I looked out my office window and saw two American robins perched on the dumpsters at Central Catholic High School. As I watched, one dove into a dumpster and disappeared. Soon it flew out of the flap opening on the left and the other robin dove in.
What is this? I’m used to seeing crows, gulls and even house sparrows at dumpsters … but robins??
I tried to photograph the robins but always missed so I’ve had to settle for a snapshot of the dumpsters with a green symbol for the robins’ favorite pre-dive perch.
I wonder what attracted them into the dumpster.
I did not dive in to find out!
