What does happen with the robins? About two weeks ago I saw a large group of 
robins feeding in the grass. I pulled the car over, grabbed my binoculars 
and discovered 20 American Robins on the lawn. The really interesting part 
was that there was one adult female in the group and all the rest were 
juvenile birds, with very different and pretty plumages.

 So, was the one female adult "babysitting" all the juveniles? Do the adults 
migrate out before the young of the year? Do the young flock together before 
the adults? Anybody know more about this type of behaviour? Please enlighten 
us.
