The Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center at Cedar Hill posted on Facebook that more robins are migrating to Texas this winter as part of a disorder that occurs when robins migrate for food in large numbers.
During a live Facebook video, Audubon Center educator Katie Christman stated that if you want to make sure you have plants to support birds during cold winter months, consider hollies, junipers, dogwoods, beauty berries, and sumacs.
