American Robin

Turdus migratorius

Description:

The Robin has a brown back and a reddish-orange breast, varying from a rich red maroon to peachy orange. The bill is mainly yellow with a variably dark tip, the dusky area becoming more extensive in winter, and the legs and feet are brown.

Habitat:

American Robins are found in cities and towns, on lawns, on farmland, and in forest sand in winter are often associated with berry-bearing trees. In the arid southwestern United States, they summer mainly in coniferous forests in the mountains, rarely in the well-watered lowland suburbs.

Notes:

I really enjoy the Robins frequenting our area. Often times I see a Robin with a mouthful of earthworm. American Robin has a merry little strut as it goes after a target earthworm. Quickly pulling the earthworm from the ground, often flying off. Sometimes carrying the earthworm in their beak to perch on a tree branch close by.
