Robin at the feeder

We put grapes in small mesh bags for orioles and redheaded woodpeckers.

What surprised us robins trying to get at the grapes.

I hadn’t seen a robin at a feeder before but this one kept trying.

I missed getting the summersaults and head stands he was performing.

Those mesh bags also make great containers for nesting material in spring. I fill mine with dryer lint and dog hair...but not from dogs dressed as cats.

Sounds like discrimination to me.
What are cat birds to use for thier nests?

I always wondered how people got grapes to the birds! Does it work good?
