Yesterday afternoon... drunk robin. This robin has been rather flighty about my presence. All birds have that sense of danger when you focus your attention on them, but this one was moreso. Until yesterday afternoon.

It was feathered into a little hollow in the snow next to a fallen apple and it was vigorously eating. I had to get into the garage and the door is about 12 feet from where it was. Looked right at me and went back at the apple. I stepped into full view alongside the garage and it chirped and lifted and tried to land in the tree - three times. It got rather upset and was chirping in such a manner that I knew it was swearing (wait for it) like a drunk sailor.
