Robins and grape jelly

14 years ago

For years I have put out grape jelly for the Orioles and Catbirds. I have never seen any other bird at my grape jelly feeder. This year I have a Robin that will shoo away the Oriole and consume a great deal of jelly. This Robin comes many times a day for the grape jelly. He/She takes a beak-full and tips his head back like he's drinking at the bar. I certainly don't mind, but I find this very unusual. Has anyone else seen a Robin that likes grape jelly?
