American Robin gets the worm at Greenfield Park in Milwaukee County Wisconsin on March 12, 2018

Doing a little birding at Greenfield Park around noon I came across an American Robin working on a worm. It pulled it out of the ground just before I arrived but then I watch it stab the worm numerous times killing it. The story ends as it ate the worm whole. A cool spring like day with plenty of sunshine with temps in the lower 30’s. Images were taken on March 12, 2018.

Tossing the worm around checking if it was still alive

Looks like another stab to the worm…

Looking the worm over….

Getting the worm straightened for eating….

Getting a grip on the worm…

The start of eating the worm. Bumps in the worm are the places the bird stabbed the worm killing it…

Going down pretty good it looks like…

And down the worm goes…
