With fall temperatures remaining above average well into December the American Robin has been lingering around Southern Quebec in larger numbers than usual. Their late presence in large populations has lead to a depletion of fruit on trees. This will have a negative impact later in the season as Waxwings, Grosbeaks and other species of birds used to an abundant supply of food in the region will have to fly past the area and find food elsewhere.

For now there’s plenty of American Robins to photograph. Their bright orange chest in combination with the beautiful array of colors found in the fruit trees make for vividly striking bird photographs.
