This morning as I was driving to go squirrel hunting on Yanahli WMA I saw a ridiculous amount of birds all along hwy 50 east of Columbia for at least a couple miles. Not the dense black clouds of birds like blackbirds, these were more spread out and "peppered" the entire sky. When I parked the truck there were still quite a few flying and as I was walking through fields and into the woods I realized they were all robins. Never seen so many before. Now they are gone and there is not a robin to be heard.

Every winter when I lived in Louisiana they would come down by the millions it seemed in late winter.

I have an old market hunting price sheet, the price of robins $0.50 per dozen
