Robins in Northern climate

Robins eat fruits, berries, earthworms, grasshoppers, grubs. They do not exist on a seed diet. If they can find food and shelter, they will not migrate. You can hear their song all winter. Leave some meal worms on a high platform near some shrubs or other cover , and they will frequent the area. The sighting of robins indicates warmer weather or spring, is only because they are more active seeking local food sources.

November and December Averages Spot On

Here in southwest Lower Michigan the monthly averages that were forecast by TOFA were spot on. In Grand Rapids, MI we averaged exactly 4.0 degrees (above) for the month, and November averaged 5.0 degrees (below). The daily timing/temperature/precip were fairly close as well - nice job guys. Let's hope the January forecast (5.0 degrees above) is spot on as well. So far a pretty easy winter; just the way many of us like it.

That's in Indianapolis IN by the way!
