Camera Critters #178

The American Robin is a resident where I live year round.  During the winter, the population grows to the millions.  Go to the Juniper badlands around here during that time of the year and you’ll most likely get tired of seeing Robins and another bird which gathers here in large numbers during the cold months…the Northern Flicker.

Recently, I walked the River Trail at Smith Rock State Park for about half its length (decided to turn around when thunderstorms began forming…don’t want to be in a canyon area when rains come).  The trail I took is highlighted in red on this page -- http://www.nwhiker.com/SmithRockHike.html 

It is a gorgeous hike and one I have made several times.

On this trip, I came across a lot of Robins…but not just any Robin, but juvenile Robins.  I don’t think I saw a mature Robin the entire hike.

Cute shots of the jevenile Robins.

They still are pretty birds, even in excess. Now I know why you never showed much excitement when I'd show you a Flicker photo. ;-)

I do love the juveniles. So many different color variants. Sweet shots, Ash.
