Lyman Orchards

Inspired by recent reports of impressive American Robin numbers at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT, I spent a couple hours there today in search of thrushes. I did find some Robins, but not in the numbers seen by others. My max count at one time was about 75 birds swirling in the air above the apple orchards, which came immediately after a Merlin made a dash overhead.
