April 6.  6 Robins at Claude Lake. When the blizzard arrived on the 9th they took shelter by the house in the Engleman Ivy vines and enjoyed the berries.  We fed them frozen saskatoons, currents and raisins in an open dish feeder hanging from a birch tree until the snow melted.  The Robins are now doing fine and searching my lawn for food.   Mel Kuprowsky
