You’re most likely to spot a winter robin in southern B.C. and Ontario, as well as the coastal Maritimes, Jackson Kusack, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Biology at Western University, recently told The Weather Network.
“Over the past few decades, more and more robins are adopting a non-migratory strategy, and they’re migrating less than 100 kilometres.”
When the temperature dips, robins – like other birds – employ several strategies to combat the cold. Their fat and feathers act as insulation, and they know to seek shelter from harsh storms.
