It turns out some robins have always wintered in Vermont, but they're doing so in greater numbers than normal, said Mark LaBarr, the conservation program manager at the Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington.

He noted the Christmas bird count, in which volunteers conducted a census on birds within a 15-mile radius of Burlington, found 2,191 American robins, a record high for the 64 years the count has been conducted. "We normally don't see robins to this extent here in the state this time of year," LaBarr said.
Robins are more likely to stay in Vermont, or stop on their way south from Canada if they encounter a lack of snow and and a plentiful food source, LaBarr said. Why bother wasting time and travel and energy when you've arrived at a spot where you have everything you need.
Fruit bearing trees and bushes had a good year this summer and fall, so robins are feasting on those, LaBarr said. There have been reports of robins high up on the slopes of Mount Mansfield because mountain ash trees, which typicality grow at some of Vermont's highest elevations, bore plenty of berries in the fall, he said.
Unlike in the spring, when robins are getting ready to mate and are territorial, the birds often appear in flocks in the winter, LaBarr said.
Or, they'll settle for food that isn't quite as appealing, but will do, LaBarr said. For instance, he recently noticed robins feeding on staghorn sumac near his office. That's not their preferred food, he said, but they will eat it.
LaBarr said there's no reason to worry for the robins if deep snow and severe cold arrive in Vermont before winter ends. As long as there's an adequate food supply, the robins won't freeze, he said.
Sometime in March, if you hear the red wing blackbirds' distinctive cock-a-LEE call in wetlands, it's an almost sure bet winter is ending, LaBarr said.
However, there have already been one or two reports of red wing blackbirds in Vermont in recent days, he said.
