American robin eating wild cherry 5700

American robin eating wild cherry in Maryland, USA. There are 3 or 4 wild cherry trees in the neighborhood and these robins ( and I think grackles. Not positive) stripped these trees clean in 3 days. If you view this large you can see the drops of juice dripping and the mess on the beak. They will definitely eat two cherries in a row and possibly more.
