The robins and cedar waxwings usually arrive in the San Francisco Bay Area from up north about this time of year to feed on the ripe pyracantha berries in our yards. They don’t come every year and it’s been a couple of years since they came in large numbers. But this year, looks like they’re back again in force! I’ve received 10 emails in the last week from all around the Bay, reporting LOTS of robins and some waxwings. You are the only one to send photos. Thanks for sharing them! Nice pond! The birds obviously like it. /Gary
