Glen Morris Horticultural Society
GLEN MORRIS HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY
Most Robins head south for the winter but a few are year-round residents if food, water, and shelter are available. Worms make up 15% of their diet plus insects and invertebrates, but Robins are primarily fruit and berry eaters. They enjoy fruits from Hawthorns, Crabapples, Mountain Ash, and Chokecherries, as well as Juniper, Honeysuckle, and Sumac berries.
If you decide to feed Robins, they love dried blueberries, cranberries, suet pellets, grapes cut in half, apple slices, and mealworms.
