Fattening Up

Quick biology lesson #1 - if animals don't eat, they die, right?

Quick biology lesson #2 - when animals eat, they often put on fat, right?

Quick biology lesson #3 - songbirds put on fat to stay alive, right?

I snapped this picture of an American Robin at Lake Erie Metropark yesterday. Before you go all wild and wonder about a Robin in Michigan during the winter, you need to understand that they will overwinter here in small numbers. Anyhow...there it was on the sumac plucking away. You can even notice the red gunk on the bill.

Hmmmm...they eat to get fat to stay alive?

Perhaps it needs some of my Fettuccine Alfredo.
