  1. When I mow my fields, I'm apparently stirring up enough insects to attract a glossy blue bird with a silver breast/underside. They circle around and swoop down on all sides of me. At first, I thought they were dive-bombing me to keep me away from nests, but then it occurred to me that they might be after insects. I've checked the mid-Atlantic North America birder books, but cannon find one fitting that description. The purple martin is the closest, although it seems to be dark purple/blue all over. This one definitely has a white/silvery underbelly. I'm sorry to have no photo; they're too fast for me to even bother trying to catch one on film. Thanks for your help. Cameron
  2. Robins are common year-round here in the mid-Atlantic region, especially so in the spring and summer. This year was no exception. That is, until about late July when I noticed i wasn't seeing nearly as much. Now it's mid August and I haven't seen a single robin in days whether I'm in the city, suburbs, or way out in the countryside. Do robins tend to leave in August? Where have they gone? Why? We've had a LOT of rain this summer and flooding, perhaps could be part of it? It's just odd as I've always known robins to be year-round residents in Maryland, Virginia and Delaware. Thanks for any input!
