Hundreds of chubby, red- breasted robins ventured into north central Kansas last week. In one yard, they devoured bread crumbs that had been tossed for their mid-afternoon snack. In another yard, they feasted on berries and other appetizing tidbits found on the ground or trees. Bird feeders were delights beyond imagina- tion. At another place, food had io be scavenged between cat-attacks. Rob- ins thought they had found an abun- dant buffet, only to learn they were sought as a lunch for the felines. You'd see a'cat, belly-low. ~dinkin~ to the grassy area covered with birds, Yet, wise birds that they were, they sensed when to stop eating and fly to the~safety of the trees. On that particu- lar day, the birds scored 100; the cats zero. This week's report from t~ie i Mankato Livestock Commissiono., Inc.
