Yesterday was stormy here. As we approached evening, I noticed a bush branch jumping up and down; as i looked more carefully, I realized that a bird was flying in, grabbing and eating a berry, then flying off.
My reflexes - aiming @420mmm, then pressing the shutter - were barely up to the task, but I did photograph the hungry rascal one time.

Indeed, robins do eat a lot of berries!

I have one large Holly tree in my yard...
and dozens of Holly starts coming up all over the place thanks to robins spreading the seeds.

Thank you for your comment.

Yes, Robins are very productive in helping the bushes to spread to new locations.
