The morning before Thanksgiving, I went to the grocery store to buy some last minute ingredients for our Thanksgiving meal. However, when I returned home, I found that the feast had already started.
A whole flock of Robins had descended on my Winterberry Holly bushes and were busy gobbling up as many berries as they could get their little beaks on.
Apparently, the Thanksgiving feast had started early this year.
There must have been around twenty birds on my two little bushes.
Of course, with so much family at the dinner table, there were bound to be a few squabbles.
As much as I couldn't begrudge the Robins their Thanksgiving feast, it was rather sad to see all the berries go even before Christmas. Last year they were my natural holiday decorations.

After the horde of Robins left, only a few, sad clumps of berries remained.
What can I say?

I guess the early bird gets all the berries!
For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, I wish you safe travels, and a warm and happy holiday with your loved ones! And may all of us be thankful for our blessings.
