Late-Nesting Robins

Most of the discussion on the WV-bird listserv the last couple of weeks has revolved around post-breeding wanderers and migrants. So I was surprised on Monday to discover a pair of American Robins attending a nest with well-grown young in our backyard. Not especially unusual, I guess, but quite unexpected, especially in light of the flocks of robins (47 birds total) that I had encountered at Altona Marsh, Jefferson County, on Saturday. This is a crazy, mixed-up time of year.
